Cycle Against Suicide

On Wednesday 24th April,  twenty four Transition Year students and two teachers joined the peloton of cyclists who are cycling around Ireland to raise awareness of positive mental health and to try help break the cycle of suicide that exists in Ireland. We joined the route at Oylgate , and what a wonderful occasion it was being part of over 300 cyclists, all kitted out in orange. We pedalled back to Wexford and finished with a huge welcome at the Presentation Convent, where food and soup was on offer. We listened to a talk on the reasons for this event and left knowing that if we encounter problems in life, we need to talk and ask for help, don't try go it alone. Thank you, Ms. Ivers for organising our participation.
