Children’s Mental Health Week

Children’s Mental Health Week 2021 at Norfolk House School was a huge success.  The level of engagement from our pupils was exceptional and some of the work they produced or activities they carried out are incredibly impressive.

It was so lovely to see and hear of all the exciting things that went on over the week and to see so many children enjoying their time away from the screens on our wellbeing afternoon. Some of the activities that took place were baking, artwork, outdoor activities such as walks, climbing, bike riding, skateboarding, poetry and newspaper writing, music making, airbrushing, singing, mindfulness, crafting and so much more. It is important that our children understand how to look after their own mental health and wellbeing and that they continue to carry out activities that make them feel good. Children who are working online should be encouraged to access resources from the wellbeing hub to support them. 

It was so exciting to see the incredible number of entries for the Mental Health Competition and it was very difficult for us to decide on winners as so many wonderful and creative things took place, but we have decided from the entries posted, on a winner for each year group. We would like to say a big well done to everyone and remind you that the most important thing is that you did something wonderful for yourself.

Form 1: Sebastian C for enjoying his violin and expressing himself

An excellent effort from everyone. Most images are available on the wellbeing hub or on the department hubs to view. Some pieces of work have been put together in the video below to celebrate Children’s Mental Health week.
