The Derrytrasna Pastoral Care Award was launched in September 2014 by the then DE Minister, Mr John O’Dowd.
The Derrytrasna Award for Pastoral Care was created in partnership with the Public Health Agency (PHA). The annual award is for school communities that have demonstrated exceptional pastoral care in supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of pupils and their families.
The aim of the award is the acknowledgement and celebration of schools that 'exceed' normal expectations in supporting some element of the personal, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs of a child or young person.
