As part of our Amber Flag initiative we were tasked with deciding on a fundraiser that would raise vital funds for Pieta to help them continue the amazing work they do supporting those suffering with poor mental health.
Seeing as it was National Mental Health Awareness Day on the 10th October, the Amber Flag committee thought it would be a great idea to coincide with this date and do something that would lift everyone's mood and bring a bit of fun to the school.
Therefore we hosted our fantastic 'Rainbow Day' on the 9th October. We asked all the students and staff to come into school wearing their brightest coloured clothes and to each bring n €2.
We had such a fun day celebrating Rainbow Day. Ms Whelan, our principal, organised a 'socially distanced' disco on the yard where the children and staff got to let loose, forget all their worries and dance!
We were just amazed by not only the beautiful array of colours that came into the school but also by the generosity of our families who donated.
In total we raised €1235 for Pieta.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed, you have made a real difference to someone's life. If you wish to find out more about the great work done by Pieta, visit: www.pieta.ie
