What is the Amber Flag?

The Pieta Amber Flag Initiative recognises the individual efforts of primary and secondary schools, youthreach’s, third level institutions, community groups and clubs to create healthy, inclusive environments that support mental well-being.

Who is on the Amber Flag Committee?

In Gorey ETSS, the whole school is involved with the Amber Flag, many of the activities that the committee organise are whole school events that all staff and students can take part in.

We have a committee of 10 first year students:

Kate Zulge

Erin Delaney

Danielle Molloy

Alexander Garfield

Olek Duchnowski

Jessica Kelly Doyle

Kate McDonald

Alannah Lynch

Rochelle Noblezala

Saoirse McHugh Murphy

Our committee are dedicated to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in our school and the wider Gorey areas.

What have the Amber Flag Committee done so far?

Since the election to the Amber Flag Committee in September they have held a very successful Stand-Up week.

On Friday 15th October they held a feel-good Friday reward day for our first years. The students were treated to a healthy breakfast of pancakes and fresh fruit. They took park in mindful yoga and colouring activities. To end the day, they were taken to the cinema in Gorey.

The committee have many more projects in the pipelines for the foreseeable future.

We will be applying for our first ever Amber Flag in April next year.
