In May 2023, Kilcornan National School were awarded their first Amber Flag. For the second year, we are working towards earning our second Amber Flag. The Amber Flag initiative is run by Pieta House and flags are awarded to schools for creating a healthy, inclusive environment that supports mental well-being. As part of the Amber Flag initiative, Kilcornan National School held a well-being week whereby children took part in activities such as yoga, mindfulness and well-being Zooms.
Self Evaluation and Well Being Homework
To promote well being and student self evaluation, children from all classes complete a booklet reflecting on what they enjoyed at school over the past month. On the last Thursday of each month, children receive well-being homework.
