JAGS Junior School celebrates Children’s Mental Health Week

This week was Children’s Mental Health week and the theme this year was ‘growing together.’

Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Throughout the week, our pupils were encouraged to think about how challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt, and how trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. During the week, assemblies and activities were devised to help pupils understand that we all experience a range of emotions, and we asked them to explore emotions in more depth to develop their understanding. Pupils attended assemblies on feelings and mindfulness, as well as taking part in practical mindfulness activities, including outdoor art lessons.

Our Junior School also celebrated Safer Internet Day as part of Children’s Mental Health Week, focusing on safer relationships online. Pupils were asked to think about how they can play their part in creating a better internet and they came up with some fantastic suggestions.

Speaking about the week, Ms Bannon, Deputy Head Pastoral at the Junior School, said, ‘Whilst there is a continual focus at JAGS on the wellbeing of our pupils, Children’s Mental Health Week provides a wonderful opportunity to highlight the importance of mental health for children and young people. Throughout the week, we have taken time to focus on mental health and developing a greater understanding of how the girls can best look after their own mental health. This empowers them with a range of strategies that they can use both in and out of school. It also creates an open and supportive culture in which the girls feel comfortable to talk about any issues that they may be facing.’
