Health and Safety Team 

Wednesday 10th October 2018 – WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY

 

The Health and Safety Pupil Leadership Team at Glasshouses Primary school have organised events to highlight the World Mental Health Day. The team, along with the Class Teachers, Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Romilly, asked everyone to wear yellow – #Hello Yellow – and donate a pound to help raise money for the cause. 

 

Throughout the day, the Pupil Leadership Team held mini assemblies for all classes to share some strategies that could help children if they are feeling upset, alone or just need to talk. 

 

As part of this work, the school has also launched an initiative called, ‘Peer Listeners’. This is a structured programme which involves Year 5 and 6 children applying for the position of a ‘Peer Listener’,  undergoing  a 3 week training programme and then being available to listen and coach children who would like help with a specific issue. 

 

More details about the team will be announced once the interviews have been finalised.
