This week we have been celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week in the Senior School with a series of activities.

To fit with this year’s Nature theme, Be Green have been running a Gardening Club every lunchtime.

Pupils and staff have been working hard on creating a community garden in school.

They have spent time preparing the beds, building bug houses, creating a patio area and planting wildflowers, strawberries and potatoes.

We’re still on the hunt for some more plants to add to the garden. If parents or pupils would like to donate a plant they can be left next to the water butt in the garden – which is located in the swimming pool car park, next to the back of the music department. Thank you!

If you would like to find out more about why nature is good for mental health, and some top tips on how you can connect with nature, the Peer Education Project has put together two guides – one for parents and one for pupils – which you can download below:
