OCC Mental Health Week

Mental Health Week

Last week, O’Carolan College celebrated Wellbeing week. The week focused on different aspects of life that contribute to our wellbeing. Several students and staff events took place and we looked at the Wellbeing indicators of respected, responsible, connected, active and resilient. In our school, we strive to educate our students to develop academically, physically and mentally, to prepare them for the future. This week allowed us to take the time to reflect and focus on how we develop habits to nuture our mental health.
