CBS Wexford receives Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Award –
On Tuesday last, September 12th, the now annual Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Awards ceremony was held at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham. These awards recognised the immense efforts of 89 schools around the island of Ireland who have completed the Ambassador School Programme, and became actively involved in mental health promotion. The Ambassador School Programme is one aspect of a wide range of Cycle Against Suicide initiatives and programmes, is school-led, and involves the completion of “Five Gears” over the course of a year, all of which are aimed at raising awareness of the message that “It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help”.
The Programme provides a framework for schools to integrate mental health activities into the school plan, and rewards schools who go the extra mile. The Programme also aims to recognise innovative and effective initiatives, and facilitates schools to share and showcase good practice.
At the special reception, CBS Wexford was awarded the prestigious status of Ambassador School by Cycle Against Suicide in recognition of their fulfilment of the Five Gears, and their exceptional commitment to the promotion of positive mental health.

China Trip 2017
Our annual TY trip to China took place from Mar.27th to April 5th. 31 students and 3 teachers headed of to Beijing and Shanghai. An amazing experience awaited as they immersed in the Chinese way of life and got to visit all the major attractions in both Beijing and Shanghai. They climbed The Great Wall, strolled through The Summer Palace, practised Kung Fu, watched amazing acrobats, haggled in The Pearl and Silk Markets, zenned in The Lama Temple and explored the Temple of Heaven. A First Class train whisked them to Shanghai where they marvelled at the fastest growing city in the world, incredible construction, went to the top of The Jinmao Building, viewed the skyline from The Bund, and enjoyed the Yu Gardens.
The food was incredible and tasting such a variety of flavours was a wonderful experience. China is an amazingly diverse country and to get this experience while in school is certainly a true education in the value of travel.
