St. Brigid's G.N.S. 'Wellbeing' Committee


Our senior committee consists of Sophia, Heidi N,
Awana, Mia, Georgia, Melania, Hannah, Rachel,
Robyn, Raluca, Hannah, Cassidy, Angelica,
Chantelle, Anna and Erin..


Our Wellbeing Committee undertakes a variety of
initiatives throughout the year to promote wellbeing
in our school. Some activities that were organized by
the committee include
● Wellbeing Week
● Yoga Workshops
● Mindfulness
● Meditation
● Kindness Challenges
● Art competitions
● Music on the Yard


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, c
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 o
ur school community.

Amber Flag: 

The children on the Wellbeing Committee play a
huge part in helping us achieve our 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

  • 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.
