Mental Health Awareness Day (2019)
On this day, we learnt all about how important it is to look after your mental health as well as your physical health. We started the day by joining in with Joe Wicks live as we had discussed the benefit that exercise has on your mind. Throughout the day, we discussed lots more strategies to help to ensure that we looked after our mental health.
As a school, we wore yellow to represent our support for those suffering with mental health.
Mental health awareness day also saw the introduction of the newest members of our school family, Toffee and Marshmellow. The friendly guinea pigs were introduced to help children in the school who may be feeling worried or anxious at home or at school to encourage them to open up and to help them to take their mind off things, having something to love and care for. During the day, we created instructions on how to look after and care for the guinea pigs.
