Scoil Mhuire has received wonderful news to-day. It has been awarded its first ever Amber flag for promoting positive mental health and well being in the school. I would especially like to thank and congratulate Ms.Donohoe for her dedication and hard work with this initiative which she has overseen all year. I would also like to thank and congratulate the wonderful Amber Flag committee for putting in all the hard effort and work it takes to fulfill the goals of the flag. It was wonderful to see the whole school community get involved with this initiative and it is something the school intends to continue when it returns to school in September. Our wear pink or red day was thoroughly enjoyable for all and promoted our Amber Flag value for this year of “love and value yourself”. Thank you all for your support with this initiative. It has been a hugely positive and rewarding experience for the school. Please find below the email from the Amber Flag Association confirming the award of the Amber Flag to Scoil Mhuire. We look forward to raising this flag and celebrating this achievement when we return to school in the autumn.
I hope you and all your families continue to keep safe and well.
Ms. O’ Kelly
Dear Amber Flag Committee in Scoil Mhuire Mount Sackville,
We at Pieta are delighted to inform you that your school has been awarded with the Amber Flag!
We would like to thank the Amber Flag Committee for their commitment and dedication to promoting Positive Mental Health in your school this year. As you know in order to receive a Pieta Amber Flag you have to set and achieve goals throughout the year and our team found your application to be an outstanding initiative promoting positive mental health. We are truly overwhelmed with the amazing initiatives being run in schools this year. You are all a credit to your school.
We know how difficult the last few months have been and we are so thankful that you were able to achieve your goals either in person or “virtually”. We understand it’s been a trying time for the Amber Flag Committee but we hope that you can look back on your achievements throughout the year and be grateful of the time you spent together and the goals you’ve accomplished! Don’t underestimate the positive impact that your work has had this year. We, here at Pieta, certainly don’t.
Attached are certificates for the Amber Flag Committee that you can edit the names and forward them to everyone, if you wish. There is also a certificate for your school that we hope you will display to show your great achievements. We are hoping to send the physical flags once we get back from working remotely, hopefully this will be in September so thank you for your understanding.
Again, well done to all of you. Pieta’s Amber Flag Team hope that you are proud of all your accomplishments this year, especially in spite of the current situation. We certainly are!
The Pieta Amber Flag Team
