STUDENTS from Coláiste Gleann Lí presented proceeds from a recent fundraiser to Pieta House Tralee on Monday.

The students held a ‘colours day’ where students wore yellow, blue or orange — which are the colours of Pieta House — and donated €2, eventually raising €360. There were also fun games held on the day.

“We in Coláiste Gleann Lí are very conscious of the effect COVID-19 is having on people’s mental health and the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme wanted to do something for Pieta House,” said teacher Marie Doody.

“We already have the Amber Flag for supporting positive mental health and there are a number of activities in the school to support students’ wellbeing,” added Ms Doody.

Con O’Connor of Pieta House thanked all the students for their efforts. He said COVID-19 has resulted in an increase in the need for services at Pieta House and the youngest person availing of their support in Tralee is just six years old.
