Children’s Mental Health Week

Date Posted: Sunday 12 February 2023

In February 2023, we shined a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. The theme this year was ‘Let’s Connect’ and there were a variety of activities for staff and students to get involved with that help promote mental health through meaningful connections. Students all the way from Nursery to Sixth Form heard from Mrs Hall, Head of Health Education, about the importance of meaningful connections on our mental health and advice for feeling disconnected.

Students also discussed what genuine connections looked like in their PSHEE sessions, went on walks tuning into nature, drank parsley smoothies (and said they were nice!), sent notes of gratitude, created Art installations, read books, did yoga, created music and many more activities that helped promote mental health and connecting with others in the New Hall School community.
