Positive mental health enables young people to live fulfilling lives; promoting the mental health and wellbeing of our young people is a shared responsibility.. We have an inclusive, friendly, open policy at St. Colman’s College where students are encouraged to talk to any member of staff about any concern they may have.
We started the Amber Flag initiative in our school in 2022 and were awarded the Amber Flag by Pieta House in 2023. We established a hardworking committee that has strived to promote positive mental health throughout the year.
We hosted our inaugural Amber Flag Wellbeing Week in February 2023 which saw an action-packed week with a variety of activities/speakers for all year groups. We ended the week with a whole-school Wellbeing Walk in aid of Pieta House where over €600 was raised by our school community!
Please feel free to browse through some photos of our Amber Flag Wellbeing Week from February 2023!
We are very much looking forward to our next Wellbeing Week in February 2024!
