World Mental Health Day
Sunday 10th October 2021 was World Mental Health Day. Please see our assembly below created by two of our Pastoral Captains and narrated by Mrs Lewis. Every year there is a theme and this year it is Mental Health in an unequal world.
The aim of day is to move forward together for Mental Health.
