Learning in the sunshine 
Pupils in The Bay have been making most of the good weather this week and took some of their lessons outside. Our new Outdoor Classroom was the perfect place for them to make bug hotels, plant flowers and they even managed to squeeze in a little bit of fitness. 
MHS pupils part of best team in Wales
We received some fantastic new this week, pupils from Milford Haven School who are part of Neyland AFC won the West Wales Cup this week beating Sand Field 1-0 in extra time. This win makes it a double alongside the league cup meaning that these pupils and their team are officially part of the best team in West Wales. Da iawn to our talented young people and the rest of their team. 
Mental Health Awareness! 💚
Mental Health Awareness Week took place this week and pupils and staff at Milford Haven School reflected on the theme of loneliness, the experience of feeling lonely, it’s effect on our mental health and how we can tackle it in our community. Remember to reach out to loved ones and speak out if you’re feeling low and remember you are loved and you are not alone. We can all feel lonely at times so it’s important to reach out and make sure everyone feels included.

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.
