The Amber Flag committee have organised a terrific array of activities for next week in order to promote Positive Mental Health.
Mindful Monday will kick off the week.
Tranquil Tuesday will offer children a chance to practice relaxing breathing exercises.
We will also celebrate Shrove Tuesday by hosting a fundraiser for Pieta House. “Pancakes and Pyjamas for Pieta House” The children are invited to wear pyjamas/dressing gown/slippers/bright clothing(whichever they feel most comfortable with!)The children will be brought to the school hall, where the parent’s council with the assistance of the Amber Flag committee will be serving up some delicious pancakes. We encourage all children to bring a small donation (we suggest 2 euro) for the cause with them on the day. All proceeds will be donated to Pieta House. If your child suffers from allergies, please inform the school.
Think Kind Thoughts Thursday and Feel good Friday will continue our week’s celebration. We would be very greatly if you encourage your children to engage in the activities for the week. Hopefully everyone will enjoy the week.
Keep an eye on our blog for photos of the week.
