Last week, pupils and staff from across Witherslack Group rooted through their wardrobes to wear yellow for World Mental Health Day as part of the #HelloYellow campaign from Young Minds.

The international day promotes global mental health education, awareness and advocacy, it was first celebrated in 1992 and now each October, people across the world help to bring awareness and attention to it.

Here, we roundup the efforts of pupils and staff from across our Group.

Hall Cliffe School

Pupils and staff from Hall Cliffe School celebrated World Mental Health Day by raising money and awareness for the charity. They also took the opportunity to talk about the importance of mental health as part of their learning in PSHE and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  

Cumberland School

Pupils and staff from Cumberland School wore yellow too. They enjoyed a day of learning about the different ways that people can be affected by mental health and were given activities and strategies to help improve their own mental health. 

Well done everyone!
