Portarlington student Sarah Keenan has been chosen as one of just 13 national student leader ambassadors for Cycle Against Suicide.
For several years Coláiste Iosagáin secondary school in Portarlington has supported the mental health awareness organisation, Cycle Against Suicide.
Now fifth year student Sarah Keenan has been selected from over two hundred nominees throughout Ireland to be one of thirteen national student leader ambassadors for CAS.
Sarah’s written essay won her the role, and she was recently awarded her certificate at a retreat in Kippure estate.
“Colaiste Iosagain works extremely hard in promoting the message that ‘its OK not to feel OK and its absolutely OK to ask for help’ so for me, its a huge honour to get to represent the school at national level and for the school to be recognized for its efforts,” she told the Leinster Express.
