St Vincent’s is very proud to be an anchor school for this year’s Cycle Against Suicide. The staff and students are working very hard to promote the cycle’s message that ‘it’s ok not to feel ok and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help’. On Friday 17th February St Vincent’s went orange to support national SchooldGoOrange day for Cycle Against Suicide.
Anything between 500 and 1,000 cyclists will set off on their journey from Dublin on Sunday 23 April. There ETA at St Vincent’s is 17.40 and they will be departing St Vincent’s the next morning at 10.30.
We hope to give them a great reception and an even better send off. We are hoping to line the streets with staff, students, their families and friends and the entire community of Dundalk (all wearing orange). Students are busy selling t-shirts, making orange flags and posters, painting bikes orange and bringing in guest speakers from organisations that help people who are suffering from depression. Some of our teachers and senior students are busy training and will join the cycle from Dundalk to Newry.
If you would like to contribute in any way please let us know. Let’s work together as a community to break the cycle against suicide.
