Mental Health Awareness Week 2024

By Clair Hill - May 20th, 2024 | Posted in Article

Each year at Carew Academy we celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week, and this year the theme was movement, so a fun way for children of all ages to embrace physical activity as a tool for mental well-being and resilience!

Across the school we looked at mental health and the positive links between physical movement and positive wellbeing due to the increase levels of endorphins!

In RSHE, classes watched a BBC Live Lesson and completed activities whilst watching mental health and wellbeing messages from some well-known celebs including Harry Kane.

Our Upper School Dancers enjoyed a well-being walk around Beddington Park for their mental health awareness week activity. They checked in with each other, practiced some mindful activities, and took in the beautiful nature surrounding us. Their favourite spots were this incredible tree trunk and this camouflage caterpillar.
