There were numerous activities held this week in school as part of Pieta House’s ‘Feel Good Week’. Music was played in the GP/Canteen area at lunch times. Students completed a walk and talk exercise to reflect on all the things that they are grateful for, what their individual strengths are and where they could turn to if facing life’s challenges. Some 5th year students made delicious cupcakes for the staff as a thank you for their hard work that they do. Last class on Thursday was a homework class where students were allowed to get some homework done early so they could have extra time that evening to dedicate to the things that make them feel good. First years cooked one of their favourite dinners (chicken curry) which both groups thoroughly enjoyed. On Friday Mr. Kane organised a Halloween Costume Competition. Well done to students who won prizes on the day.
