Headteacher’s blog 15.09.2023

Shwmae, welcome back to school and the first blog of the academic year. I would like to take the time to say da iawn to Year 7 who have settled in very well. Two weeks in and we already have so many wonderful things to celebrate.

Outdoor Learning
Da iawn to all pupils who took part in the launch of our outdoor learning space last week. Pupils have been working extremely hard planting, clearing, building and creating a natural tree dome. 

Year 7 Assembly
Pupils in Year 7 were invited to take part in some awareness assemblies. The Year 7 girls attended an assembly hosted by our Prefect Team on Period Dignity at Milford Haven School and each pupil was handed a Period Dignity starter pack containing some basic hygiene and period products. The Year 7 boys attended the infamous talk from The Oddballs Foundation about testicular cancer and spoke to Dayle from Milford Youth Matters about opportunities in their community and some basic hygiene facts. They were all given a backpack deodorant to take away with them.

A big thank you to our Prefect Team, The OddBalls Foundation and Milford Youth Matters for taking the time to speak to our Year 7 pupils.

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.
