Health Promoting Schools

Our school is a recognised Health Promoting School. We are very proud that we were the first school in the South East of Ireland to be awarded the Health Promoting Schools award.

 The Health Promoting Schools Initiative encompasses our entire school community; pupils, parents and staff alike. It focuses on all aspects of health including physical, mental and emotional health.

Through our engagement with HPS, a series of action plans were developed and the following are just a sample of the many health promoting activities that are now embedded within the day to day life of the school community.

• Wellbeing Wednesday
• Healthy eating policy
• Pupils get the chance to grow fruit and veg in the school’s Polytunnel.
• Food Dudes initiative

Our motto is “ Eat wise and Exercise”!
