On Thursday we had a very informative visit from Niall and Lianne from the Mayo Mental Health Association. They were delighted to discover that all of us had taken part in "Friends For Life" in school. They reminded us about some risk factors associated with poor mental health and the protective factors we can use to balance them out. They told us that small things can become big things in our minds if we don't know how to cope with them. They gave us tips on how to enhance our mental health. They said that turning off all electronic devices at least an hour before we sleep will help us to have a restful night. If we have a good night's sleep, we have better days.
We had a great day in Glencorrib on Wednesday. We played very well and the boys were very unlucky to lose the final.
We wrote out a recipe for Rice-Krispie Buns step by step and then we tried it out...... mmmmmmmmm.
Junior Room Activities
The Food Dude Programme is starting soon......Watch this space!!!!!
It was Active Week this week. We started off the week with a brisk, early morning walk. We did lots of fun activities each day. We even had a dancing workshop on Thursday. The weather wasn't always kind but we managed to get out between the showers.
Evan, Fiachra and Eleanor have grown turnips, carrots, chives, spinach, lettuce, potatoes and strawberries. Well done!!
Treats for the Fearless Four and their classmates
The Senior room had a great afternoon eating Pringles and drinking hot chocolate last Friday. It was to celebrate and thank our Credit Union Quiz Team who performed so well at the national finals. Thanks Aisling, Conn, Daragh and Eleanor.
Well done to the boys and girls who played so well in Castlebar.
