Wellbeing Day 2019
Monday, 21st January 2019
Our first wellbeing day was a great success. The post-its in the corridors and in the staff room lifted everyone’s spirits.
A lot of hours went into making the post it stamps, Thanks to 2nd years.
A lot of hours went into printing of the stamps. Thanks to 4th year.
House Reps from 6th year and Student Wellbeing Committee members, offered a wellbeing card to every student who entered the school in the morning. Con Sheehan spoke to 3rd years about his journey through mental health. Mrs. Crimmins hosted a meditation in the Chapel for 6th years. Each year had the benefit of a 5 minute meditation piece played during RE class.
T.V Screen and posters were designed by students in 2nd year and SHPE groups. Wellbeing members from 4th year brought in fruit to be shared among their year group. The Debating committee will host a wellbeing debate on Friday – Titled “ For the wellbeing of the school, This house would ban homework”
I congratulate our Student Wellbeing Committee led by Tom Dooley (chair) and Mark McGrane (secretary) (both 5th Year), Ms Drew, Ms Crimmins, Ms Maguire, Ms Ni Riain and Mr McKimm. Monday 21st was ‘Blue Day’, allegedly the most depressing day of the year. Certainly Not at Blackrock.
