Health Promoting Schools Award (HSE)

Catherine McAuley Junior School is engaged with the Health Promoting Schools Programme organised by Healthy Ireland and is currently working towards its first Health Promoting School Flag. This programme involves the whole school community – pupils, parents and staff – working together to make our school the Best That It Can Be.

A small committee of staff and parents have drawn up an action plan based on the returned questionnaires from parents, staff and pupils. We appreciate and encourage your involvement.

Some of the actions taking place under the programme are:


Development of School Website and Facebook Page

Well Being

Launching the Buddy Bench Project and Friendship Week

Healthy Living

Walking Group for Parents; Updating Healthy Eating Policy
Super Troopers – including Active Homework

Look out for the Health Promoting School displays in school and follow updates on the school website/facebook page.
