Mental Health Awareness Week - Tutor Time Activities
Year 8 and Year 9 have taken part in tutor time activities, where they have had a chance to look at and discuss different aspects of our Mental Health.
Year 8 tasks were focussed on what support is available to our students and advice was given on what to do if someone was to confide in you.
Year 9 tasks were focussed on individually writing down or discussing how they would define Mental Health and what it means to them. Then as a form they agreed on a final definition/keywords together.
All students were given the opportunity to discuss their feelings such as, what makes them feel excited or sad and how to manage these feelings.
We will continue to create a comfortable environment, where all students have the opportunity to open up about their feelings and we will continue to reassure them about the various support avenues they have around them.
