Taking Care of YOU – Day one

For the next 5 days we are going to post a “Taking care of YOU” top tip for our young people and families. We know this is a hard time for everyone and taking care of your mind as well as your body is so important at this time. These tips might not be anything new but sometimes it is helpful to have ideas broken down and shared again. Pass them on and help others too!

Taking Care of YOU – Day one
Talk to someone about your worries. It’s ok to feel helpless, scared or anxious at this time. It’s also ok to feel fine. Everyone reacts differently. Try talking to someone you trust about how you feel. Sharing our worries helps. If you don’t feel you can talk to someone you know, click the link below for a range of fantastic helplines.

The Equality Act 2010

There are a number of laws designed to protect people from discrimination. You can learn about The Equality Act 2010 from this video and poster. It is good that we have laws but remember what we need to do ourselves is understand what racism is and oppose it wherever we see it, no matter who we are.

Year 7 Football.

Year 7 footballers were a credit to themselves and the school during practice tonight.

After some strenuous warm up activities the boys applied themselves wholeheartedly to a blood and thunder game of two halves!

The match was played in great spirit, and all enjoyed a delightful 45 minutes under the floodlights on the astro turf.

Pleasure to take you and the words of thanks at the end made it all the more enjoyable.

Students who do not have PE timetabled on the day of their club, should attend school in their full UNIFORM and bring PE kit to change into after school.

Positive Postcards

Last week Year 7 created positive Christmas postcards to post to a residential care home in Ontario, Canada in recognition of world kindness week.

Students designed the postcards with images relating to Canada and Ms Brown was overjoyed to receive nearly 250 entries for the 150 residents. The residents at the care home will be alone this Christmas and the positive words and creativity shown by Year 7 students will really lift their spirits during the festive period.

A huge thank you to all of the wonderful students from Ms Brown.
