Healthy School

pic_0060-850x565 During 2009 Scoil Naomh Erc received its Health Promoting School award. This was in recognition of the the great efforts made within the entire school as well as the school community in ensuring that healthy eating and living was put high on the school agenda. In order to atain this award the school had to follow strict guidlines laid down by the HSE and these conditions had to be achieved, maintained and documented. On the day of the award presentation we had a great celebration in the hall and also a special blessing of the school’s new vegetable garden, which was also part of the health promoting school project. Check out the “GALLERY” section of the site for some pictures taken on the day.
