HSE Stress Control Online – May Schedule

The HSE has decided to re-run their free online Stress Control programme. This programme was very well received first time around. The programme is for adults, but under 18 year olds are encouraged to participate with their parents.  It may be a useful programme for Leaving Certificate students and/or their parents to access for support at this time.  Indeed, you may be interested in it yourselves.

This free Stress Control on-line programme is running again in May, commencing on Monday 11th May. All details can be found on www.stresscontrol.org. We have included the schedule for the May programme below. Each session will be repeated 4 times over 2 days to increase availability

HSE, Health and Wellbeing are delighted to support the ongoing roll out of this programme. The first Stress Control on-line programme ended last week and was hugely successful, attracting a large Irish audience. An average audience of 6,500 tuned in to each session, with 62% of the audience being from Ireland. All ages from 18 – 65+ were represented and an online survey found that 97% 'strongly agreed' or 'agreed' that 'Stress Control provided information and skills to help you manage your stress'

Young Reporters for the Environment

Creagh College would like to wish the very best of luck to 3 members of our Green schools team: Libby McColgan, 5th year, Kim Willoughby, 2nd year & Adam Du Plessis, 3rd year, who are representing our school in the 'Young Reporters for the Environment' competition. The competition is run by An Taisce & students are encouraged to investigate an environmental issue in their school or local community. The students have investigated why so many students use single-use plastic bottles in our school & how they could encourage all students & staff to bring reusable water bottles from September 2020. Unfortunately the students didn't get to display their findings due to the school closure.

Creagh College donates PPE to Frontline Healthcare Workers

Earlier this week Mrs Masterson and Mr O’Toole gathered up all of the PPE from the practical rooms and Science Labs to donate to frontline healthcare workers. Safety glasses, goggles, face shields, gloves and masks have all been boxed up and will be donated to Gorey District Hospital for use in these most unique and trying times to help in the fight against Covid-19. We hope all in our community are staying safe and healthy.

Keeping Children and Young People well during Covid-19

We have launched our new Wellbeing web page on our school website. You can find information on student wellbeing, pastoral care and staying well during Covid- 19. We will be updating this web page regularly as we think that it is vital that our students informed, positive and calm during this period.
