To celebrate Hello Yellow Day, we took part in spreading kindness amongst ourselves as well as our wider community. Everyone had the opportunity to wear a yellow accessory and an all-years rounders game took place during lunch. On Tuesday students were also given a piece of card that was specific to them, to carry around throughout the day which gave them an opportunity to express appreciation towards each other as well as gain some praises. This card of compliments will not only be a great memory but can also be a souvenir for the students of their time at NGHS with their classmates. A very big thank you to Mrs Danby, Miss Heyes and the Lower School Health and Wellbeing Team for helping to arrange this day. It is important that we take care of our mental health to live a balanced life. The overall number of people reporting mental health problems has been going up in recent years, with 1 in 4 people experiencing some kind of mental health problems each year. It is amazing that we, as a school community can come together to celebrate such events such as Hello Yellow Day to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and come together to spread kindness and make each other’s days just a little bit better!
