This year Scoil Mhólainge is working towards achieving the Amber Flag. The Amber Flag initiative aims to encourage our school to promote and actively bring about a culture change in the promotion of positive mental health within our educational system.
Our school’s Positive Thinking day took place on Wednesday 24th of October. This consisted of events promoting positivity and happiness, including meditation and yoga.
There was balloons in the P.E. hall in which parents and children wrote a negative word on the balloon. The balloons were all popped later that day as a symbol of the negative thought being popped away.
We also completed a book swap and all monies raised were donated to the charity Pieta House.
In the afternoon the Relax Kids facilitator, Gillian Coady, will gave a one hour session for parents and teachers, explaining anxiety, how the brain works and how the 7 steps can benefit your children at school and at home.
Here are some pictures of the day …….
