Cashel Community School receives Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Award
The Programme provides a framework for schools to integrate mental health activities into the school plan, and rewards schools who go the extra mile. The Programme also aims to recognise innovative and effective initiatives, and facilitates schools to share and showcase good practice.
At the special reception, Cashel Community School was awarded the prestigious status of Ambassador School by Cycle Against Suicide in recognition of their fulfilment of the Five Gears, and their exceptional commitment to the promotion of positive mental health.
Cashel Community School was represented at the event by Link Teacher Amanda Flanagan and students Conor O’Brien and Kate O’Donnell, who understandably are very proud of their achievements. “The Ambassador School Awards ceremony was a great day. It’s wonderful to attend such a positive event, and have the efforts of the students recognised. Our participation in the Ambassador School Programme has had an enormously positive impact on our school community, fostered a school-wide approach to the promotion of positive mental health, and provided incredible opportunities for student leadership”, said Ms. Flanagan speaking at the event. Minister of State for European Affairs Helen McEntee presented the awards to students on what was a very positive enjoyable day for all involved.
