In 2017, Knockainey National School was awarded the Amber Flag. This flag promotes Positive Well-being. Through this flag, we encourage our students, parents, and staff to talk openly about their emotions. We also teach pupils on different ways to manage and cope with their feelings. In times of anger, for example, go jump on a trampoline or listen to music. ‘A positive mind is a positive life.’
The Amber Flag Committee consists of Mrs Davern, Mrs Conway, Marie Boyle, Aidan Monahan, Ruth O’ Connell, Jane Egan, Jack Culhane, Kieran O’ Connell, Abby O’ Donnell, Ronan O’ Brien and Daniel Buckley.
