A CORK school decided to send out a positive message surrounding physical and mental health issues by turning a  routine fire drill into a flash mob dance.

Colaiste Muire in Cobh marked Wellbeing Week in their own way with a choreographed dance to the Queen classic Don’t Stop Me Now.

As students gathered next to the school’s car park thinking that they were taking part in a fire drill, a group of students started the routine.

As more and more students joined in, others looked on, as their performance drew cheers from onlookers.

The school has also set up a website with the aim of promoting positivity regarding wellbeing.
