Mental Health Week @ Ark Priory

Friday 08 February 2019

Children's Mental Health week has been a great success this week. It has been filled with exciting opportunities and activities to promote the health of our mind and body through Place2be charity. We have learnt three key points to stay healthy inside and out. Balanced diet, Be active and Rest.

It is also important to maintain a balanced diet and stay active. Please follow the link below for further information and fun ideas:

Throughout this week we have explored peer massage, created posters to raise awareness of how to look after our mental health, practiced meditation and learnt a range of mindfulness techniques. 

We also held a tea party afternoon on Time To Talk Day for staff to raise awareness of Mental health through Time to Change.

Next week we will be holding a variety of charity events linked to our current PSHE topic. The charities and events have  been organised and chosen by the children. Please see the timetable of exciting events for each class.
