Amber Flag Activities

26th to 30th April 2021

Positive mental health is no doubt to the forefront of all our minds as we grapple with the Covid-19 virus and the impact of recent lockdowns. At BVC we have always been very active in promotion the physical and emotional health of all our students. A group of TY students and their teachers however, are currently driving a number of school initiatives targeting this area and they are hoping to be awarded the amber flag which we will fly with great pride at our school.The Pieta Amber Flag initiative recognises the effort of schools to create healthy and inclusive environments that support mental well-being. A key aim of the programme is to devleop a happier Ireland that eradicates the stigma associated with mental health issues.

A host of activities are planned as part of this initiative (see below). We are very grateful to the organising committee: Eimear Cowman, Rebecca Codd, Hannah Redmond, Heather Boyce, Shauna Doyle, Jayna Zieda, Joe Murphy and Kristof Olah.for the outstanding work they have done to put this programme together. We would also like to thank their hard working mentors, Ms Mary Kinsella, Ms Mairead Boggan, Ms Lauren Doyle, Ms Martina Byrne (SNA) and Mr Sean Porter for driving this initiative.
