Wellbeing Week at Aldenham – the Highlights
As part of Wellbeing Week, the Life Matters Department were pleased to welcome to the School: Dick Moore to speak about Mental Health First Aid; GB Boxer Jonathan Kumuteo; and Yolanda Adamson, Becky Lund-Harket and Dr Emma Chan from the charity Sexplain.
Year 10 and 12 students had an afternoon off timetable to learn about looking after themselves both physically and emotionally, whilst Year 11 and 13 students had the opportunity to get involved with the Mental Health First Aid as part of their tutor time activities. A thoroughly fruitful and insightful afternoon for all involved.
Dick Moore also spoke to a packed house of appreciative parents and guardians in the evening about how they could support their young people through the stresses of exams and the teenage years. We plan to run a second talk in the future for those parents who were unable to attend this time.
