Mission Possible - School Wellbeing Awards

We are delighted to announce MISSION POSSIBLE; SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS is now live

What is it?

We recognise the importance of the contribution from schools to the promotion of positive mental health & wellbeing. The purpose of Mission Possible is to formally acknowledge and recognise contributions by schools across the country. We acknowledge that schools make a valuable contribution to accomplishing the debunking of stigma and the promotion of positive mental health to their young people.
We believe Mission Possible provides a formal process for acknowledging the outstanding achievements by Irish schools by recognising and celebrating these achievements.

How it works

There are a couple of steps to take in order to enter Mission Possible. See below.

An Awards Ceremony will take place in St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services on 28th April 2017.

Step 1

Fill in a ‘School’s Proposal.
Your ‘School Proposal’ is a document outlining what your school will be doing OR has done to promote wellbeing.

*Please include the following information in your proposal*

  • Describe your school’s mental health idea/project/event (500 words or less)
  • Date you plan to carry out your project (Past events can also be added)
  • How many students are/ were involved in this initiative?
  • Name of school

Tip: If your school does not already have one, it may be a good idea to form a ‘Wellbeing Committee’ to coordinate your entry and any future events you may have to promote positive mental health in your school.

Step 2:

Send the ‘School’s Proposal form to info@walkinmyshoes.ie with ‘Mission Possible’ in the subject line.

Once you have submitted your ‘School Proposal’, you are free to commence work on your project.

You will receive an email acknowledgement from the Walk in My Shoes team. (You must complete this stage in order to progress further with the competition)

Step 3: FINAL STAGE

Your evidence can include the following:
