Children’s Mental Health Week

On Monday the children attended an assembly for Children’s mental Health Week which is taking place from the 5th – 11th February 2024. The theme this year is ‘My Voice Matters’ and aims to empower children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves. When we feel empowered, there’s a positive impact on our wellbeing. Children who feel that their voices are heard and can make a difference have a greater sense of community and self-esteem.
We talked about the importance of keeping our bodies and minds healthy and discussed the ways that we can express ourselves as well as activities we can do to help with our wellbeing. We all joined in with some deep breathing and came up with a range of ideas that can be used as calming activities.
During Children’s Mental Health Week, we have been completing activities in class based around the theme of ‘My Voice Matters’ and we want all children and young people to be able to say – and believe – “My Voice Matters.”
