Christmas at MHS
Christmas has landed at MHS and Mrs Sanderson in The Library has kindly left some mystery gifts under her tree for the pupils to enjoy. 

A book is a gift you can open again and again.

The Bay Boccia teams
This week they took part in the Annual Sport Pembrokeshire Boccia Tournament which was held at The Meads Leisure Centre in Milford. Thirteen teams from schools across Pembrokeshire competed in the tournament for the overall trophy. Both Milford teams played outstanding during the day with one of the teams topping their pool to make it through to the semi finals. With a tense game ahead the team took on Redhill school and made it to the final. After another close and tense match they came runners up bringing home individual Silver Medal plaques. We are so proud of the way our teams conducted themselves and supported each other, each other them were a credit to themselves and the school.

GCSE POD is a fantastic resource which Milford Haven School continues to promote amongst learners and their parents/carers.

GCSE POD holds a wealth of support for a range of subjects, with some content specific for KS3 as well as KS4. Learners are encouraged to use their MHS Google log-in to access the site and start exploring the site which could prove extremely beneficial for our KS4 learners.

Young person’s mental health toolkit from HWB.
Below is a link to the young person’s mental health toolkit from HWB, designed for 11 to 25-year-olds. Here you will find six playlists to direct you to a wide range of online resources to help you through the lockdown and beyond. In each of the playlists you’ll find self-help websites, apps, helplines, and more that are here to support your mental health and well-being.
Please remember: if you’re finding it difficult to cope, make sure you speak to someone you trust. Who this might be is different for everyone, but it might include family members or carers, a teacher, a helpline, or a doctor. How you feel is important and lots of people are here to help if you need them.
