 - Skerries Community College receives Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Award – 

 

On September 23rd, the now annual Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Awards ceremony was held at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham. These awards recognised the immense efforts of 83 schools around the island of Ireland who have completed the Ambassador School Programme, and become actively involved in mental health promotion. The Ambassador School Programme, one aspect of a wide range of Cycle Against Suicide initiatives, is school-led, and involves the completion of “Five Gears” over the course of a year, all of which are aimed at raising awareness of the message that “It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help”.  

At a special reception held at The Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, Skerries Community College was awarded the prestigious status of Ambassador School by Cycle Against Suicide in recognition of its fulfilment of the Five Gears, and its exceptional commitment to the promotion of positive mental health.  

Skerries Community College was represented at the event by Link Teacher, Ms Marise Carr, 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 Marise Carr speaking at the event. Representatives from the main education bodies and trusts, the Institute of Guidance Counsellors and the Ombudsman for Children, Niall Muldoon, all attended to celebrate the remarkable achievements of the schools involved.

The Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton TD, congratulated the schools which completed the Ambassador School Programme. The Minister said: "It is fantastic to see that 83 schools around the island of Ireland have completed the Ambassador School Programme, and become actively involved in mental health promotion. This is a hugely important issue that affects so many families. I strongly support the promotion of positive mental health awareness in both primary and post-primary schools.”

The new school year has begun and the PA is swinging back into action.

The Parents' Association applauds those students who plan to take part in the 'Mission Romania' initiative. They have been very enthusiastic in their fund raising over the summer months and we hope to be able to make a donation to their funds.

 

We are currently reviewing the format of the Study Skills seminar, which the PA sponsors and which usually takes place mid November.

 

It is felt that it may not be of great benefit to First Year students and should be more directed to the Exam year students. Any feedback on this would be welcomed by us.

Skerries Community College celebrate at “Health Promoting Schools’ flag raising

There were celebrations at Skerries Community College when the new HSE Healthy Ireland – Health Promoting Schools Flag was officially unveiled on Friday 13th May 2016. The flag was the culmination of a two year project on health and well-being at Skerries Community College.

Some of the many health initiatives which were undertaken in order to progress as a “Health Promoting” school included: healthy eating with a new school policy, a well-being week, promotion of a suicide prevention message through involvement in the Cycle Against Suicide, weekly staff Pilates class, weekly running club and up to twelve different extra-curricular sporting options available to students. The school has also undertaken to have a healthy school shop in September 2016.

Mr. O’ Reilly spearheaded the healthy programme in the school. He was assisted by members of the Healthy School Committee whose members included: Ms Carr, Mr Leavy, Ms Fitzsimmons, Ms Farrell, Ms Keegan, Mr Connolly, Ms Hurley, Ms Doyle, Mr Elebert, Ms White, Ms Duffy, Ms Corbett and Ms Daly. The Student Council co-ordinated by Ms Carr assisted in organizing many of the physical and emotional well-being events throughout the year.

“I take this opportunity to thank the staff, students and management for their hard work and recognize especially the work of Mr. Eamon O’ Reilly chairperson of the Healthy Schools Committee , said Anne Walsh, HSE Healthy Schools Co-ordinator.

Anne added “Skerries Community College shall endeavor to sustain and build on this wonderful physical and mental health promotion work utilizing a whole school approach”.
