November 2023 Update

Difficulty with body image affects people of any gender. In today’s society, there is a focus on physical appearance and the ‘perfect body’ and social media can emphasise this.

Scrolling through Instagram and making comparisons between ourselves and what we see is very common. This can distort our sense of body image, creating unrealistic expectations of how we should look and as such, is impacting on the mental health of many young people.

Jigsaw are offering an online webinar this coming Tuesday evening to support parents around this.


Parents can sign in again or, if you are a new parent, sign up through this link.

May 2023 Update

In May 2023 we received the Jigsaw One Good School Gold Award. The aim of One Good School is to enable schools to share the responsibility for promoting and supporting youth mental health across the whole-school community to ensure better mental health outcome for young people. Ireland, where all young people's mental health is valued and supported. We continue to be part of the program.

February 2023 Update

We are now in the final stage of the One Good School Program which began in September 2021. Here is an outline of what has happened since our last update and what we aim to do before the end of the school year:-



  • 6th Years have completed an in person 2 hour workshop with Jigsaw Staff - My   Mental Health What Helps ?

  • 6th Years have completed an Exam Stress Course

  • 4 Transition Year Students have reached  Week 6 of  a 12 week Peer Education Programme


Staff continue to be offered webinars and cluster sessions with other Donegal Schools exploring themes such as Self Esteem and Self Harm.  School Management have completed 2 out of a total of 3 Leadership Webinars with the final one taking place next term - themes so far have been Eating Disorders and Supporting LGBT+ Students.


In December a self-directed online parent course on Mental Health Awareness was offered to all parents.

Next Steps


 Staff will be offered a final cluster session and webinar before the end of the school year. 


TY students will complete their Peer Education training over the next 4 weeks. They have been working with students from Crana College and Carndonagh Community School throughout their training schedule.  On completion of this training they will deliver presentations to Junior Cycle Students on mental health issues and consequently will graduate with Jigsaw as Peer Educators.


Parents will be offered a final webinar on Mental Health Awareness. This is the second part of the Jigsaw Parent Webinar series. It will focus on the theme of Young People and Friendships and will take place on 14th March. 

Parents can log in again here One Good School Login or there is still time to sign up if you haven’t already. Further promotion will take place on the school’s social media channels over the next few weeks. We would like to thank all the parents who have taken part in the webinars and online course to date. We would encourage as many parents as possible to take part in the final webinar so that we can best support our young people.
