In December 2022, we held our 'Twelve Days of Christmas' event which was well attended by our school communities. Children throughout the school visited Father Christmas in his grotto and had the opportunity to complete Christmas crafts such as snowman biscuits, hot chocolate reindeer and woollen gonks. Parents also enjoyed a warming mulled wine!
My Happy Mind
At myHappymind we continue to look at innovative ways to support families to recover from the challenges that the pandemic has brought. We know from speaking to many of you that from an emotional and mental health recovery perspective, the work has only just begun.
That’s why for a limited time, we are offering one of our most popular families courses ‘Meltdown Management 101’ for free and we thought that you might want to share this with your parents.
This short, video-based course is aligned to the 'Meet Your Brain' module and will help all parents better understand what’s going on in their children's brains during times of big emotions or worry.
In order for your parents to access this course for free they just need to follow this link:
Please do share this link in the best way possible to reach as many of your parents as possible. The course is available for free until June 6th.
