The Headstrong Mental Health Committee will hold a Bake Sale on Thursday 6th May from 1.05pm-1.50pm in the Marquee. All money raised will go towards the services run by Carlow Regional Youth Services, particularly towards Follaine (a counselling service for young people). Members of the Comahirle na nOg group will be there to represent their recent ‘How’s Your Head’ campaign, students involved in the GSA (Gay Straight Alliance group) will be available to let you know how to get involved and also information on how to manage anxiety and stress, including specific information on panic attacks will be available on the day. We will also be highlighting the Darkness into Light event happening Nationwide at dawn on Saturday 8th May and encouraging you and your family to get involved to support where possible.
Students and Staff are also encouraged to get create a piece of art based on the theme ‘What Inspires Me’. Please bring your work (posters/paintings/drawings…) to the Guidance Offices from Tuesday 4th until 11.45am on Thursday 6th May to be included in the display.
Social distancing protocols will be in place for this event and a one-way system through the marquee will be in effect. If anyone wishes to donate some baked goods towards the event, please get in touch with Ms Cumiskey.
