The Amber Flag Initiative, promoting positive mental health in schools
The Amber Flag Initiative
We promote positive mental health in St. Mary's and we are very aware of the importance of good mental health for all in our school community.
We achieved our first Amber Flag in recognition of our efforts to create a healthy and inclusive environment that is supportive of the mental well-being of all in our school community.
Our Amber Flag committee planned fun activities such as mindful colouring, guided meditation, gratitude activities, breathing techniques, well-being poster and colouring competition as well as a non-uniform day and fundraising disco to raise money for Pieta House for 'Well-being Week' to help promote and support positive mental health in our school.
Well-being Week 2023 was held in March from from 27/3/23 to 31/3/23.
