We were delighted to be awarded the Health Promoting Schools Flag this year. We have worked hard for the past two years to gain this recognition. Some of the initatives we introduced into the school are;
weekly mindfulness sessions, yoga, Daily Mile, Food Dudes, Cyber bullying seminar for pupils, new playground, weekly GAA coach, learning to read nutritional values on food and drinks packaging, displays on sugar and fat content of snacks, cereals, drinks, chocolate bars etc. Needless to say, we've been very busy! We look forward to continuing this work in the future.
The HPS committee from Aughadreena NS are pictured below as we raised the flag on Sports Day. We had our HSE Rep, two parents reps, four pupils, a staff rep and our HPS co-ordinator.
