Random Acts of Kindness; Thought for the Day delivered by SVSS students; Compliment Box/Shout Out Box; Promotion of the ‘Darkness into Light’ walk amongst our Senior Cycle students; TY students delivered an Internet Safety talk to our 1st Years.
In addition to these activities, student well-being has been promoted throughout our student population during the year by the Resilience Academy Programme, run by Pieta House. Some students and their mothers also participated in the iGirls Programme. The Mind Your Head Programme was also delivered to our Transition Year students.
Darkness into Light is a fund-raising suicide awareness event for Pieta House. Each year walks take place throughout the country to coincide with the sun rising. 'Darkness into Light' is a powerful metaphor to highlight that from the darkest moments there will always be hope. Money raised helps keep Pieta House's life-saving services free and helps them to broaden the services that can be provided to those in need.
As part of SVSS activities to promote positive mental health and resilience amongst our school community a group of around 55 people comprising of students, past pupils, teachers and parents from St. Vincent’s Secondary School took part in Pieta House’s ‘Darkness into Light’ walk on Saturday, May 6th 2017 at the early hour of 4a.m.
The event was enjoyed by all and highlighted the willingness of our entire school community to positively promote the well-being of everyone in our school community. We are very proud to have raised in the region of €2030 to help support Pieta House.
