GAELCHOLÁISTE Chiarraí was a colourful place on Wednesday as the school took part in a special event for Cycle Against Suicide.

All the students were asked to wear an item of orange clothing with some even painting their faces that colour for the day, in order to complete another ‘gear’ towards their Cycle Against Suicided Ambassador award.

The school was awarded the Cycle Against Suicide  Ambassador award back in September at a ceremony in Dublin in recognition of the work the students did to promote positive wellbeing.

The Ambassador School Programme  is school-led, and involves the completion of “Five Gears” over the course of a year, all of which are aimed at raising awareness of the message that “It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help”.

“Before Christmas we held Mental Health Week at the school and also a spinathon for Cycle Against Suicide,” explained Career Guidance teacher Eibhlín Ní Mhuircheartaigh. The school hopes to get their second Ambassador award later this year.
