Childrens Mental Health Week
This week is Children Mental Health Week.
Students are raising money by selling cakes, ribbons and holding a 'guess the name of the teddy' competition at lunchtimes and breaktime today. The cakes look delicious and it's for a great cause.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge released this statement in support Children Mental Health Week:
For many children today, the world can feel a scary and daunting place. While we might not feel brave inside, even the smallest act- such as sharing a worry or asking for help - can be incredibly courageous. Helping children to feel confident about seeking support can have a transformational impact on their lives. Being able to try new things and push ourselves outside of our comfort zone.
This week we are trying to raise as much money as possible to support Children's Mental Health Week with the focus of "Bravery".
