Health Promoting School

The Health Promoting Schools Committee has worked on a number of themes including, ‘Communication’ and ‘Well-Being.’ Currently we are working on the third of our health promoting school themes - that of ‘Physical Activity.’

In relation to physical activity we applied to the Loreto Trust Board for funding to complete signage for a Slí na Sláinte route around the school. Our application was successful and working with Tara Curran from the Irish Heart Foundation we mapped out four walking routes around the school. We are delighted to be the first Post Primary school in Ireland to have developed a Slí na Sláinte route. We intend to officially launch our Slí na Sláinte in August 2018 as part of the 1st year induction programme.

At present we are working towards achieving Health Promoting School status and hope to submit our application early in the new school year.
