Mental Health Week (24th-28th March)

 

A mental health awareness week was held in Coláiste Éinde, Salthill last week to promote positive mental health and to raise money for JIGSAW, Galway.  Class groups in the school received a short presentation highlighting the importance of 5 key strategies which students and teachers could incorporate into their daily routines, namely:

  1. Connect with people in your life
  2. Be Active
  3. Notice how you feel
  4. Get Involved in something new
  5. Give something back

With these strategies in mind, staff organised a number of events throughout the week, these included: A Tag Rugby Blitz, Wellbeing Talks from Jigsaw, A Mile Challenge, Anti- Homophobic Bullying Workshops, Mindfulness Meditation, Zumba classes, Yoga and a 5-A-Side Soccer Blitz.  The Home Economics department set up a Juice Bar every day at lunchtime promoting healthy eating.  In order to encourage the charity element of the week for JIGSAW, Galway, students were asked to make a small contribution towards the different activities
