'Mind Your Mental Health'

As we all know, the key to surviving a bad day , a bad week or a difficult time in our lives is being aware of our mental health and knowing little things we can do to improve and maintain a positive outlook on life.

The Student Council , SPHE Dept , the RE and the PE Dept have created a number of events this week which will hopefully raise awareness among students and staff of the importance of caring for your mental health.
This week:
(1) The Little Things posters are displayed all over the school.
(2) Positive thought banners are also displayed.
(3) Religion teachers will organise a 'Random Act of Kindness' in all religion classes so that students get an opportunity to do something nice for their fellow students.
(4) Religion classes/SPHE classes will also focus on mental health /well- being this week.
(5) The Student Council Notice Board contains all info about this week and also useful websites.
(6) Google '1 Minute Meditation'...
