Go Orange Day

In the morning, spinning bikes were set up in the canteen. There were sweets, drinks and stickers set up on a table beside the bikes for the people taking part. There was also face painting available for the people taking part and the members of the committee. Orange balloons were released outside whilst our chaplain said a few words about what the balloons symbolised in regards to everyday worries and stresses and mental health. Orange balloons were put up around the school with inspirational quotes like “#ShareTheJourney”, “LoretoMilford” and “Cycle Against Suicide”. Music was played in the canteen throughout the day to motivate everyone. And the end of the day, over €800 was raised to support North West Pieta House.
