Support for World Mental Health Day

10th October 2018

World Mental Health day 2018Today we have been speaking with our pupils about World Mental Health Day, and the importance of looking after your own mental health and supporting others with theirs.

This morning, we were delighted to be joined by Miss Mansfield & Sherwood Forest Bethany Wigley who spoke to our children about her involvement in the charity Rethink Mental Illness. She talked about how we all have a range of emotions that affect how we feel, how we can improve our mental health, and showed some fab videos to explain the subject matter.

The whole academy has also been participating in a non-uniform day, donating £1 to wear their own clothes today. The money raised will all go to Bethany's chosen charity Rethink, and will support the work they do to help people with mental health issues throughout the UK.

We thank Bethany for giving up her time to visit us today, and to our pupil leaders for taking Miss Mansfield on a tour of Wainwright Primary (to see how brilliant it is)!
