Funky Shoe Day/Mental Health Awareness Day

Funky Shoe Day/Mental Health Awareness Day

On Thursday May 21st we had our Funky Shoe Day in St Audoen’s NS. Children wore odd shoes and odd socks with their uniforms. Funky Shoe/Sock Day raises awareness about our Mental Health and Well-being. In St Audoen’s we encourage the children to think about ‘Walking in Someone Else’s Shoes, to promote empathy and understanding for people going through a difficult time. We asked children to donate 50c or a €1 on Thursday which the school will send to St Patrick’s University Hospital, James St, Dublin 8.

Despite the serious message, we had a great day with lots of laughs and spot prizes. So far we have raised almost €200; well done to all the boys and girls and their families who kindly donated to this great cause.
