Children’s Mental Health Week
KSA is supporting Children’s Mental Health Week from the 6-12 February 2023
KSA is supporting Children’s Mental Health Week from the 6-12 February 2023. The event aims to shine a spotlight on the importance of children’s mental health. This year the theme is ‘Let’s Connect’ and is about making meaningful connections. Connection is vital for our wellbeing. If we have healthy connections, it can support our mental health and sense of wellbeing.
During the week, students will be taking part in tutor time activities. Information is also displayed around the school and books are available in the library for students to read.
Take a look at ‘Top Tips for Parents and Carers’ showing you some simple ways you can connect with your child. Have a look at the links below to get further information about the event along with advice how to support your child.
