On 9th of October, our school was presented with the ‘Health Promoting School’ flag by Mr. Paul Gillen of the HSE. We were awarded the flag in recognition of the positive changes made in our school environment in relation to positive mental health, healthy eating and caring for the environment.
Throughout the school year of 2017/2018, we introduced the theme ‘Healthy Eating, Active Living’ for all staff and students. To achieve this, the staff and students participated in a number of events and activities. These included guest speakers, step meter challenges, sports days and bonding trips. Each more enjoyable than the last! We are so thrilled to be awarded the flag here in Coláiste Mhuire, and to be in the privileged position of being one of 12 schools in Galway to do so. Watch this space as we continue of Health Promoting School journey!
