Walk in My Shoes

The Student Council of Sancta Maria College held a ‘Walk in My Shoes’ campaign on the 26th April 2012 to gain a deeper awareness of mental health problems among 18-25 year olds suffering from mental illness. Students decided to donate €2 to the event and wore unusual shoes with their uniform. This was a national event run by St. Patricks Hospital Foundation in James Street Dublin. Students and teachers got very creative and enjoyed the day in an effort to make a recovery for these young people a reality.


Student Council Easter Egg Raffle

Supporting Aware

Tickets €1 Please Support!

Aware's mission is to create a society where people with depression and their families are understood and supported, are free from stigma and have access to a broad range of appropriate therapies to enable them to reach their full potential.”
                   - taken from Aware’s website
Aware strives to make life easier for those who suffer from mental illness and depression in their everyday lives, also supporting their families. They provide a local non - judgemental helpline where 75 dedicated volunteers man the helpline for almost 500 hours between them each month. Last year over 200 volunteer facilitators provided more than 2,000 support group sessions.
We organised a Easter egg raffle in aid of Aware, with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for the winners, all of which were Easter Eggs. Raffle tickets were sold around the school by Niamh and Maureen for a mere €1. Students and teachers supported the raffle generously. It was an extremely meaningful fundraiser for a worthwhile organisation.

Art Pad Project

Allocated the art pads to a shelf- unit outside the art-room rather  than them cluttering up the locker rooms and areas around the school. This was a worthwhile project and with helpful co-ordination from Mr.O’Flynn(the art teacher)he art pads were allocated to one specific safe area.
