We are proud to announce that Adamstown Community College have been awarded our 4th consecutive Ambassador School Status from the Cycle Against Suicide organisation. This award recognises the consistent effort that the school community contributes to promoting positive mental health in the school. Lead by a group of senior students, The Cara Aires, many initiatives are organised in the school such as Wellbeing Week, a winter clothing drive, a staff vs student basketball match, anti-bullying peer support, restorative practice sessions and the inclusion of wellbeing as a core element throughout the curriculum.
The award was accepted by Principal Des Newton, along with link teacher Eimear Carroll and 6th year students, Chloe McKenna and Jessica Rea. The ceremony was held on 12th September in The Honorable Society of King’s Inns and featured an inspiring talk delivered by Helen McEntee TD who is passionate about spreading the core message, “It’s OK not to feel OK, and it is absolutely OK to ask for help.’’ Well done to everyone involved in this important organisation.
