News - 19 April

Following our very successful ‘This Girl Can’ event at the beginning of the school year, on Tuesday 5th April our Year 10 boys participated in our ‘This Boy Can’ day, organised by PE Teacher Kat Beaument and Wendy Brown, Co-ordinator of Student Wellbeing. The focus of this day was to raise awareness of male mental health and wellbeing, important issues that have increased due to the pandemic.

A number of agencies attended the day running various workshops including fitness and resilience training, team building with the Army, self-defence and mental health workshop with the self-esteem team. The day concluded with a marketplace of various agencies providing the students with information on different support available to young people.

The Year 10 boys were thoroughly engaged throughout the day and enjoyed participating in teamwork and presentations. We have had some very positive feedback from students, parents, staff and agencies and we are planning to make this an annual event.
