Knockfeirna and Positive Mental Health

Hazelwood College Leaving Certificate Applied students recently climbed Knockfeirna as part of their Positive Mental Health Promotion Fortnight. Students were encouraged to undertake this physical challenge in order to gain a sense of positive achievement on reaching the summit, while also working together through encouragement. Pictured are (back row left to right) Colm McMahon, Michael Geary and William Boyce. Middle row (left to right): Dylan Hennessy, Timmy Brosnan, Jack Willas, Liam McDermott, Dean Falvy, Jack M.

L.C.A & Personal Safety

LCA students with Nick Feehan & Alexander Walsh from Personal Safety Ireland

Recently Leaving Certificate Applied students completed a one day workshop where there was an emphasis on personal awareness, responsible decision making, respect for oneself and others.

Personal Safety and Awareness is an invaluable aspect of student development and relevant to students throughout their school career and adult life.

The students really enjoyed the day especially the self defence aspect.
