World Mental Health Day 2021

This year for World Mental Health Day we are celebrating by saying #HelloYellow.

#HelloYellow is a focus on young people’s mental health set up by the charity Young Minds. On October 8th we will be raising awareness for mental health and celebrating the small things that have got us through the last year.

We began with a video made by staff and pupils which was shown at assembly. Staff and pupils have also been making yellow bunting with the little things which have helped us to get through the past year. The bunting will be used to decorate the school, along with posters and paper chains made by pupils.

We are asking everyone to wear yellow as a little thing we can do to highlight mental health issues in young people. There are loads of supports, both in school and out, and we will have a fayre in the Learning Plaza to hightlight these to the young people.

The pupil Mental Health Group have been busy baking and there will also be a photo booth so that we can also decorate our social media and paint it yellow too.

Welcome to our blog

We have decided to set up this blog in order to share information about health and wellbeing and we hope you find it helpful. This year has been a time of huge change and we have had to find ways to connect in a more virtual way.

Hopefully as time goes by it will prove itself a helpful source of information and support. For more information you might want to check out our pages and if you have any ideas, suggestions or feedback, please feel free to Contact Us.

At Banchory Academy we take a whole school approach to wellbeing so it is important to us to hear your voice. If you would like to share your thoughts, experience or knowledge about any area of wellbeing, then we would love to have you post on our blog.
