Wearing odd socks to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week!

In February, St George’s supported Children’s Mental Health Week, with this year’s theme of ‘My Voice Matters’. My Voice Matters is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves. When we feel empowered, there’s a positive impact on our wellbeing. Children who feel that their voices are heard and can make a difference have a greater sense of community and self-esteem. We want children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be empowered to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing.

We also took part in ‘Inside Out Day’. Everyone came into school with an item of clothing inside out. The idea is to help us to explain how we are feeling inside - getting our inside feelings out in the open and encouraging discussion.

Throughout the week, the children took part in wellbeing activities, discussing our feelings, creating artwork, making feelings cards, playing games displaying and expressing our emotions and going ‘Inside Out’ – showing it’s ok to get our feelings (what’s inside of us) out into the open!
