At Spa Academy Askern we have planned some events to raise awareness of World Mental Health Day, which is on October 10th, 2023.
World Mental Health Day is an internationally recognised day dedicated to raising awareness about mental health issues and promoting mental well-being. It is an important occasion to remind ourselves of the significance of mental health and the need to support those who may be struggling.
To contribute to this important cause, our school will be organising the following activities:
Live Band Performance
On Tuesday morning, we have a live folk style band coming into school to deliver a performance to us all. It will take place from 10am, on the stage in the sports hall and pupils will be provided with refreshments during the performance. This event will be at no additional cost to pupils. We hope the children will thoroughly enjoy this unique experience and we are sure they will be telling you all about it at home!
Express Yourself - Non-uniform Day:
On October 10th, 2023, we invite all pupils and staff to participate in our 'Express Yourself' non-uniform day, an opportunity to wear something that shows your personality or makes you feel relaxed or happy. You can follow the Mental Health Foundation theme and "Wear Yellow or Green" on this day to show support for mental health awareness.
To take part, we are asking students to donate £1 (or any amount they are comfortable with), which will also go towards the Mental Health Foundation's initiatives. We believe that these activities will not only raise funds for a worthy cause but also foster a sense of community and empathy within our school. It's a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about the importance of mental health and contribute to a cause that affects so many lives.
We appreciate your support in making this event a success and helping us spread awareness about mental health. Together, we can make a positive impact on the well-being of our community and beyond. Any donations can be brought into school on Tuesday 10th October.
Thank you for your continued support.
