This week, we have a particular focus on mental health and wellbeing in our classes and homerooms. Wellbeing Week has included workshops which have been presented to different year groups by our Year 12 Student Leadership team. In addition, Ms Amy Haddadi from the organisation Safe on Social, conducted enlightening presentations aimed at empowering our boys to make informed decisions when online, and how to play a part in building a safer, more empathetic online world for everyone.
At St Patrick’s College, we have a variety of resources available to us to support our mental health, including supportive class and homeroom teachers, counsellors, year coordinators, and friends. We hope Wellbeing Week serves as a reminder of the importance of looking after our mental health, and what resources are available to us if we need help.
