On Thursday 2 February, pupils and staff came together for a Time to Talk event with pastries and hot chocolate in the canteen after school. Run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, Time to Talk Day is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Every year, one in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem. Talking helps to create supportive communities which can empower us to seek help when we need it. By opening up the conversation about mental health, we can support both ourselves and others. The event gave pupils and staff an opportunity to unwind and talk over mindful colouring sheets and chess. It was great to see Year 11 pupils sharing tips to support their wellbeing during the upcoming exam period. We are looking forward to celebrating more events next week for Children’s Mental Health Week.
