Self-care and taking some time for yourself is vital for our wellbeing, so enjoy our ‘Wellbeing Thursday’ this week.

Our personal wellbeing is of prime importance at present with all the added strain of the pandemic and worries about our loved ones.

Stress can have a negative effect on us all. students who are trying to carry on their education online. Parents who are trying to not only do their own jobs, look after the family and now be a support to learning and also our staff who are learning the best ways to teach online and support our key worker students whilst keeping themselves safe.

To do our little bit to encourage self-care and positive wellbeing, this Thursday we will hold ‘Wellbeing Thursday’ for both students and staff.

There will be NO LESSONS after period 2 on this day so that you can complete some of the fun activities on the pdf that will have been sent to you and can be found on the link below.
