The Amber Flag Initiative
The Pieta House Amber Flag Initiative recognises the individual efforts of schools, companies and groups to create healthy, inclusive environments that support mental well-being and unites these groups in their efforts, working together toward a happier, healthier Ireland and eradicate the stigmas associated with mental health issues.
Cheeverstown School has applied to be considered for the Amber Flag. The school has identified a number of strategies already in place to promote positive mental health and are working on improving the promotion of positive mental health for all of the pupils and staff. This is an exciting development within our school.
'No Place Like Home'
This September, three students from the National College of Art and Design (N.C.A.D.) facilitated an Art Project for our students based on the theme ‘No Place Like Home’.
Junior Cycle – Level 1 Learning Programmes
On 24th May 2018, three of our pupils attended the launch of the Level 1 Learning Programmes held in Croke Park and attended by Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Richard Bruton.
Football for All
Our pupils continue their links with the FAI participating in 'Football for All' facilitated by JJ and Christy.
They have enjoyed engaging with lots of their peers from local mainstream schools.
We would like to congratulate Emer Conway (Teacher) as she has successfully completed the Droichead Induction Process. We wish her every success on her professional career ahead. We thank her for her engagement with the process and the Professional Support Team with the school.
