Yesterday students in Year 9 and 10 were given the opportunity to enjoy a Yoga session with Miss Hemingway and Mrs Gardner. They discussed the benefits of exercise and the positive impact it has on mental health as well as physical health.

There are some great tips below from the charity Mind on why exercise is so important for our mental health.

Children’s Mental Health Week

February 3rd, 2020 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in News - (0 Comments)

This week pupils at St Joseph’s School are proud to be supporting Placetobe’s Children’s Mental Health Week. During Year 7 PSHE this morning, students worked hard researching people who have faced and overcome physical or mental challenges and students created posters with the theme ‘Find your Brave’.  They learnt about how bravery is about asking for help, trying new things and sharing any worries. Mental wellbeing is so important for every child, and central to the school’s ethos of care, compassion and community. Well done to all in Year 7 – remember to ask for help and to share any worries you may have.
