Congratulations to our Healthy Promoting Schools Committee on gaining another flag for our school. The committee was led by Ms Treasa Corcoran, Ms Kay Grace and Ms Catherine Murphy and parents Linda Kehoe and Mary O Shea. Two children from every class worked hard all year to achieve our flag with a real emphasis on mental health and physical health. Mindfulness Monday was one concept introduced and Food Dudes was an opportunity for the children to eat fruit and vegetables that they might not normally eat or try. Yoga, Granparent's Day, Friendship Week, Bug Hotels, Fairy Doors were just some of the other projects included in the initiative.
Caroline O'Loughlin from the Health Promoting Schools Initiative came to raise our flag and sopke very well about how much we had done and achieved. She gave the children lots of encouragement and thanked them for all they had done.
