    • hello yellow mental health

    A massive thank you to all the children (and adults!) who helped us celebrate ‘World Mental Health Day’ on Thursday, by joining in with the #helloyellow campaign. We managed to secure a whopping £134! Thank you so much for your kind donations which were in aid of the charity Young Minds; further details found at https://youngminds.org.uk/

    Mrs Blackburn Headteacher write;  “As part of the campaign, the World Health Organisation asked schools, offices, companies and community groups to wear something yellow on Thursday 10th October in a bid to both raise funds and awareness and show young people that they’re not alone with their mental health.

    At The Firs we are passionate about healthy, happy minds and  helping children reach their potential so we have a number of activities based around mindfulness to help children learn to be aware of mental health and to recognise the signs. We are delighted to support this very important campaign which happens in October every year to try and help open dialogue for sufferers. “
