Wellbeing Week took place in Carndonagh Community School from Monday 11th to Friday 15th February 2019 and was marked by a number of activities throughout the week. The five ways to wellbeing were used as the main theme for the various activities.


Student Council Representatives addressed students with various messages over the school intercom daily. Events varied from ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ for 3rd year students and staff, talks for senior students, a ‘PositiviTEA' party for all 1st years as well as a ‘Mindful Mile’ walk for all 2nd year students. A Spinning Bike challenge was organised by Mr. Sam Bogan as part of Schools Go Orange. SPHE teachers also centred their lessons around Wellbeing. A number of classes participated in artwork for displays around the school as well as creating a beautiful Wellbeing Frame for photos! Staff and students were also able to listen to a number of CCS musicians perform during lunchtime.
