National Mental Health Week 7th -13th October

This week was National Mental Health Week. To mark this very important week and to highlight the
importance of talking about our feelings and thinking about other people’s feelings, we encouraged
all pupils to take part in our “Feel Good Week”. Pupils completed mediation & breathing exercises as
well as some fun and active Go-Noodle dance routines. They coloured some mindfulness colouring
sheets and completed an activity for inclusion on and around the Amber Flag board which is
displayed at the heart of the school. The themes of friendship, bullying and ways to cope with our
feelings was discussed with each of the classes. Daily affirmations were discussed such as, Don’t
sweat the small stuff, eat well, feel well and a problem shared is a problem halved. Pupils were also
encouraged to complete their feel good homework every night, whereby they had to do something
to make themselves and those around them feel good. The Amber Flag Committee would like to
thank all pupils, staff and parents for their participation.

When it rains, look for rainbows. When it is dark, look for the stars.
