Pyjama Day in the school to raise money for charity


Dear Amber Flag Coordinators & Committee,  

Congratulations on being awarded the 2023/2024 Pieta Amber Flag! 

Your Amber Flag Committee has shown great commitment in promoting positive mental health by encouraging teamwork and contributions from peers. Our team has thoroughly enjoyed seeing the results of your efforts through the wonderful initiatives you organised. 

We hope that by taking part in the Amber Flag initiative, you will continue to raise awareness of stigmas which exist and the stressors on our collective mental and emotional wellbeing.

Your flag has been posted and is on its way, so please keep an eye out!

Thank you once again for all your hard work. We hope that the Amber Flag has impacted positively on everyone involved. It has been a real honour working with you all this year.

Kind regards, 

The Amber Flag Team

We received this lovely email informing us of the good news:

Dear Agnes Foley,

Congratulations - your school has achieved an SFI Curious Minds Award. We have evaluated your Log of Evidence and we are satisfied that you have met all the criteria for the Gold Award.
Your school has provided evidence of children's engagement with STEM in the following areas:





STEM Showcase

Here is some feedback on your Log of Evidence:

Congratulations on delivering an excellent log of your SFI Curious Minds experiences this year. The log clearly demonstrates evidence of an impressive range of STEM engagement across the school, incorporating STEM Education class trips, STEM Weeks, hands on investigations and projects. Fantastic to see the range of activities happening in the school - design and make projects, investigations on micro-organism growth on bread, taste, magnetism and more! Your materials section was particularly strong with a range of investigations for different class groups. The maths mazes, puzzles and trails are great ways to boost engagement with and enjoyment of Maths! Keep up this fantastic work and well done on your award! It is a real credit to the pupils, teachers and the community for all the work you do. Tip for next time: The Maths Week quiz evidence appears to be showing the Science Week Shows so make sure to upload the right images for each section but you have ample evidence of other maths activities so no more information needed. Well done all on a fantastic application!

All activities undertaken from our previous awards can be viewed on the PDFs below.
