Ambassador School Programme: Cycle Against Suicide
Naas CC has just been informed that they have been awarded status as ambassador for Cycle Against Suicide.

As an ambassador school Naas Cc will continue to promote the message of "it’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help". The Ambassador School Programme established in 2013 aims to encourage schools to become actively involved in mental health promotion. Through this programme Naas CC will continue to embed Wellbeing for all staff and students into all areas of the curriculum and continue their hard work in mental health development.

Spring Clean 2018
A huge thank you and very well done to all students who participated in the 3rd National Spring Clean with Naas Community College.
As part of Healthy Living Week at the school, the Green Schools Committee organized a group outing of 30 students, who explored around Naas and discovered and cleaned up some black spots in the area. A whopper amount of rubbish was collected and it all makes a wonderful difference to the community. It is a great initiative to take part in and has been growing steadily each year, so onwards and upwards to 2019!
