TY Students attended the Student Leaders Congress with their teachers Ms Fox and Ms Keane at the 3Arena run by Cycle Against Suicide Charity. This event is a contact based education day where students participate in a day of mental health talks in a fun and inclusive environment. Research shows that contact based education is one of the most powerful tools of learning. The event educated over 7,000 TY students about the mental health continuum. It addressed mental health stigma, offered hope and support services and focused on building resilience.
As a celebration of mental health this education day was supported by the bands The Academic and Kodaline. To say the atmosphere was electric is an understatement. Students learned It’s Ok to not feel Ok and it’s absolutely Ok to ask for help and Be Brave, Reach Out and Speak Up.
We are asking our school community to vote for Fly Youth on Sunday night’s Ireland’s Got Talent. Luke Brady (TY) is a member of this brilliant dance troupe and they gave a very impressive performance today for their TY students. Good luck guys!
