Walk with the Rising Sun

 

Our Walk with the Rising Sun took place on Oct 19th, for students staff, parents and even family pets!  The walk began and ended at the school, rounded off positively with a group breakfast . The aim of this get-together was not only to raise funds for our chosen charities – The Donal Walsh #LiveLife Foundation and Pieta House but also a way of extending a helping hand to those students struggling with any form of mental stress, and letting them know that they do not walk alone. 

This initiative was first organised by myself, Shauna Griffith and Katie Griffin, Class of 2015 in April 2014, with the support of Ms O Malley, Guidance Counsellor, to raise awareness of the prevalence of mental health problems and the very tangible yet silent role these play in the lives of many within our school community and beyond. 

In addition to the walk, Katie, Shauna and I attended the Student Leaders' Congress in the RDS which was run by Irish entrepreneur Jim Breen (Cycle Against Suicide), which aims to provide students with the tools and confidence to instigate events within their own school communities. Donal Walsh's father, Fionnbar, of The Donal Walsh Foundation, spoke at this event and we were so impressed by him that we invited him to visit and speak at the school about Donal's message to young people suffering with suicidal thoughts. Since then, a group of our students got on their bikes and took part in the Cycle Against Suicide, with another group travelling to the RDS again last year to the Student Leaders' Congress.

As you can see from the photos, we were lucky enough to see a fine sunrise on the appointed day.  We would in particular, like to thank the PSA for their support this year with the introduction of the wristband to mark this day and their support with providing breakfast.  

We would like all members of our school community to remember the motto:

'It's OK not to feel OK, and it's absolutely OK to ask for help'.

Aoife O'Connor, Class of 2015
