On Friday the 7th of June we celebrated Mental Health Day in Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh. The main themes of the day were celebrating difference and showing empathy to others. We all got to wear crazy hairstyles for the day and some of us even wore odd socks and shoes! The day began with a fun assembly in the hall for the whole school. During assembly we watched three videos and we listened as the fantastic Health Promoting Committee shared stories with us about how people in our school help one another and how being different is good. Each teacher was surprised with a handwritten note on how they make a positive contribution to the school and they also received a packet of cookies!! This was appreciated by all and made us feel very special.

Thank you to Ms. Hennessy and the Health Promoting Committee for organising the day for us all. We enjoyed it so much!
