Children’s Mental Health Week 2022

This year’s theme is “Growing Together”.

We will be encouraging children to think of how they have grown and what they can do to help others grow. To grow emotionally can have challenges and setbacks but these are ultimately what makes us a stronger person and to help us move beyond our comfort zone. We will be thinking with the children how the have changed and the things that have made them stronger.
