This year Carew Academy celebrated Youth Mental Health Day focusing on the theme to ‘Be Brave’. Whether building confidence in facing difficult situations, building social confidence through learning to work together on team tasks, or learning to have the courage to fail by doing something new no matter what the outcome, being brave can mean something different to everyone.
In classes we discussed what it takes to be brave and what small steps we can do in school, in life, or at work experience to be brave, and how achieving even small steps can help us feel great!
Some examples from students were:
Catching a spider and letting it out in the garden
Applying for a job in the local shop
Going to Jamie’s Farm
Trying a new food
