AMBER FLAG FOR POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH
We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in securing our first Amber Flag for the promotion of positive mental health in our school. Amber Flag is run by Pieta House.
Now more than ever, we value the importance of positive mental health and mental resilience. We look forward to building on our mental health practices when we return to school.
We believe that our Amber Flag and Active Flag work well in tandem with one another. A healthy mind in a healthy body.
