World Mental Health Day - Monday 9th October 2023

This year World Mental Health day falls on the 10th October. As we are having our school photographs on this day we will be celebrating a day early on Monday 9th October. To celebrate World Mental Health Day this year we are asking that the children come to school in bright, happy colours or clothes that make them feel happy. Please make sure that their clothes and shoes are suitable for the school day. If your child has PE on this day they can wear comfortable clothes appropriate for a PE lesson. All classes will complete an activity during this day based around improving mental health. This day is important to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to offer our support.
