Amber Flag Update
You may remember that we have been working towards obtaining the Amber Flag award for our school this year. The Amber Flag is awarded by Pieta House and is an initiative to promote positive mental health.
We are delighted now to tell you that we have been successful and that our school has been awarded with the Amber Flag! We are incredibly happy and proud and wish to thank everybody, throughout the whole school community, for all the help, encouragement and support they provided during this process.
The team at Pieta commended our application as “an outstanding initiative promoting positive mental health”. They also stated that they were “overwhelmed with the amazing initiatives being run in our school this year”. Their feedback represents a gratifying indictment of the ongoing wonderful work that is undertaken in our school to promote positive mental health.
We have been awarded with certificates for the school and the committee members and look forward to receiving the physical flag once current circumstances allow.
We look forward very much to seeing the Amber Flag flying proudly over our school!
