World Mental Health Day 2021
Today we marked World Mental Health Day with a variety of activities. The day started with Charlotte a nutritionist who spoke to us about the importance of good sleep, screen free time before bed, how water can affect our well-being and the importance of eating our greens. Student voice said it was very useful and learnt a few key tips. Staff also mentioned that Charlotte was informative and there’s some definite discussion about coffee intake after midday (which isn’t advised if you want to sleep well). Year 11 had a talk from Andy Grant author of You’ll Never Walk. His message was one of resilience and perseverance. We then had Zumba in the hall at lunch to keep us moving and increase those happy hormones. The day will end with students gathering in form to write their mental health pledges and how we can all take steps to help each other and ourselves out.
