Level three accreditation as a Take 5 School

19th June 2023

We are delighted to have received Level 3 Take 5 status. This is the highest accreditation a school can receive!

The Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing is an evidence-based public health message aimed at improving wellbeing and aims to assist good mental health and wellbeing, through engaging in a range of activities. At St. Louis we believe the Take Five Approach is important to highlight for the mental health and wellbeing of our students and staff.

The 5 Steps to Wellbeing in this context are:

  • Connect – Spend time with people
  • Keep Learning – Don’t be afraid to try something new
  • Be Active – Exercising makes you feel good
  • Take Notice – of your thoughts and feelings and of others around you
  • Give – Do something nice for someone else

Mrs O’Neill, Mrs McGreevy and Mrs McVey attended a celebration event at the Tullyglass Hotel on Wednesday 7th June. They received the Take 5 Level 3 Award at this event. In order to achieve this award, the school completed the following initiatives:

  • Created and updated pastoral policies
  • Created a Take 5 steps to wellbeing pledge
  • Recruited pupil champions
  • The creation of a Take 5 Noticeboard and dedicated Take 5 steps to wellbeing Area
  • Take 5 focus in PD lessons
