  • Charity Fun Run,
  • Public Speakers like Celine Byrne, Seamus Hennessy, Fionnbar Walsh (father of Donal Walsh) and more.
  • We will hold poster competitions
  • Design an Amber Flag webpage

  • Hold a Mental Health Awareness Week.

We intend to link Positive Mental Health in with the curriculum in a variety of subjects. We will link in with the community in a variety of ways also.
