2019/ 2020 Plan


What we did: We created a PowerPoint about ADHD and displayed it on the TV's around the school. We also created and designed posters around the myths of ADHD and displayed them around the school. We used the colour purple mainly for these posters as purple is the colour associated with ADHD.

NOVEMBER: LGBTQ+ Information

What we did: We created a PowerPoint on LGBTQ+ and displayed it on the TVs around our school. We also decorated the school in rainbow colours and put up our LGBT Flag. We also had assemblies with our Guidance Counsellor and helped organise 5th and 6th year assemblies.

DECEMBER: Anxiety Awareness

What we did: We put a worry box outside Ms. Cusack's office where people could put in anonymous notes if they were anxious or were upset about something.

JANUARY: Living Life

What we did: We organised for Donal Walsh's mum, Elma Walsh to talk to 5th and 6th year students.


What we did: We organised and coordinated a 5km walk for all our first year students - #schoolsgoorange. Physical exercise is an extremely important tool when dealing with stress. We also sold Valentine lollipops where people bought lollipops and sent them to different people in our school #actofkindness
