Below is a collection of feedback from pupils in Year 11

Ross from Elysium(October 2018)

He visited on world mental health day to help us understand how mental health affects people. He also told us how to support mental health problems and how to help a friend in need with mental health issues. He also gave us statistics to give an idea of the amount of people struggling with mental health, which helped us visualise the impacts.

Curry and Chaat lunch (October 2018)

This was organised to give us a chance to talk about mental health awareness and to bring the students and teachers together. There was a curry tasting competition to chat about mental health awareness. This meant that the students could have a longer lunch to take the time to chat. The small things matter when it comes to mental health.

Make your Mark Assembly (September 2018)

This gave the students a chance to express their views and make a stand on what they believe. It showed us how to get into the Youth Parliament. Amazingly 2 of our students are already members!

Youth Parliament gives students under 18 the chance to vote for what they believe is right and the experience of voting to make a difference.

Amy Winehouse project (June 2018)

A brave young woman came to talk to students about her experiences with alcohol and other drugs. This helped to inform the students of the dangers of alcohol and other drugs. It also gave students information about how to get help if you are facing the same battle.

Healthy relationships Assembly (May 2018)

This taught the students the right and wrongs in a relationship and how they should be treated and how they shouldn’t be treated in a relationship. It also taught the students how to value themselves and how to talk to someone or get help if in a unhealthy relationship. There was a video showing the students an example of an unhealthy relationship and what to do if they needed help.

Nurses – Safe relationships Assembly

For our health and social group two nurses came in to talk to the health and social group. They talked to them about how to be safe with contraceptives. They informed them on the different types of contraceptives. They also talked to the group about the pros and cons on taking the certain contraceptives mentioned.
