PHOTOGRAPHIC FIELD TRIP WITH ARTIST FIONA MURPHY
Here’s some stunning photographs taken by TY students during a field trip undertaken with artist Fiona Murphy around the streets of Wexford last week. Fiona is being commissioned under the Per Cent for Art Scheme to create new artwork for the school and these photos will be collated to create a new indoor artwork for the school interior. Students were asked to look for interesting angles, light and shade, and to get the ‘bug’s eye view’ – and they certainly succeeded!
Over 1000 images will be used in the large photo mosaic canvas, while Fiona will also create sculptural outdoor seating for both the Primary and Secondary School. Thanks Fiona, well done to all involved and we look forward to seeing the development of the artworks in the coming months.
The schools Code of Behaviour has been modified by Board of Management on 2nd October 2017. See Policies page.

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.
