The purpose of our Wellbeing Committee is to promote positive mental health and wellbeing in our school. We were delighted to receive our second Pieta Amber Flag last year for our effort in creating healthy, inclusive environments that support mental well-being. The World Health Organisation states that Wellbeing is present when a person realises their potential, is resilient in dealing with the normal stresses of their life, takes care of their physical wellbeing and has a sense of purpose, connection and belonging to a wider community. It is a fluid way of being and needs nurturing throughout life. St Brigid’s staff and students are dedicated to promoting wellbeing in our school community. 

Amber Flag: 

The children on the Wellbeing Committee played a huge part in helping us achieve our first Amber Flag, which we renewed last year. The Pieta Amber Flag Initiative recognises the individual efforts of schools, companies and groups to create healthy and inclusive environments that support mental well-being. It unites these groups in their efforts to work together towards a happier, healthier Ireland and eradicates the stigma associated with mental health issues. We are always trying our best to enhance the existing educational provision and support structures in the area of mental health promotion in the school.



Meetings are held fortnightly.

Communication to the school community:

  • Class Visits

  • Assembly Announcements

  • Whole school informational videos

  • 'Green Schools' Notice board in the hall and on the corridor


Each class decided on the members of the committee in their own way.  The members change every year.
