Mental Health Week

The importance of mental health and wellbeing is very important to us at St Philip’s. As the focus of mental health week is nature, we took the opportunity to go outside as much as we could!

While outside we could enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, and we did activities such as leaf rubbing and using sticks and foliage to create shapes and grids; we skipped, played tug of war, walked to the park, and used our senses to find our way around the school grounds.

Tomos Roberts (TomFoolery) read us his poem ‘The Great Realisation’ and answer questions about it and we spent time just enjoying being together and talking about the world around us.

The week concluded with everyone waving bubbles into the air as a symbol of releasing their worries.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
