WELLBEING POLICY – MERCY MOUNTHAWK
Through a process of consultation with staff, parents and students over 2017/18, the school has developed a WELLBEING policy which explains the approach to promoting wellbeing that is adopted in Mercy Mounthawk. Please read the policy here: Mercy Mounthawk WELLBEING Policy RATIFIED 25 Feb 2019
The Wellbeing programme in Mercy Mounthawk has a curriculur element which is delivered through SPHE/RSE class and PE classes. If you would like to see further information on these subject programmes please follow the links.
There is also a very important extra-curricular and co-curricular programme in the school which supports student WELLBEING. We have a dynamic Health Promotion committee which runs two health promotion weeks each year focusing on various aspects of health. See some of their activities here. We also have a significant emphasis on the promotion of Mental Health in the school and again there is a vibrant group of students, teachers and parents involved in this project. See some of their activities in particular the Amber Flag project here and the Cycle Against Suicide project video here
