We begun the process by electing our Amber Committee – this is made up of a representative from each class. The committee are:

They had some great ideas at our first meeting and we look forward to working towards our next goal in the coming weeks.

A date for your diary – Friday October 7th will be Mental Health Awareness Day in school. We have a range of activities planned and look forward to the day.

We are working on our next goal – planning an inclusive fun day to build our co-operative skills and strengthen the team spirit we have in the school. This will be part of our Mental Health Awareness Week.
