Mental Health Week

Pupils and staff at Wallace Hall got involved in a variety of activities to highlight the importance of positive mental health. Taking this year’s theme of ‘Kindness Matters’, pupils in our Hub made delicious shortbread which they delivered to members of the community who have been keeping Thornhill going during the Covid-19 crisis. They also compiled video messages promoting how important staying active is for positive mental health. On the Thursday, Wallace Hall staff also got together to promote positive mental health by taking part in a virtual cup of tea via ICT and wearing green for the day. All of the activities highlighted how important it is to look after yourself and each other

Sarah Clark-Wyse, Zoe Kean, Aidan Kennedy and Milly Macklin have all been accepted to be part of the Covid-19 response volunteer team and have started, or are just about to start, as volunteers.
