Mental Health Awareness Week

The S2 Business Enrichment classes would like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ everyone who took part in last week’s events to promote Mental Health Awareness Week.

Special ‘thanks’ go to all of the staff – Ms Pour, Mr Ajeda, Mrs Jeffrey, Ms McArthur, Mr Lambrou, Mr Cameron, Mr McCarron, Mr Robb, Dr Sugden and Ms Stuart – who took part in the “Soak a teacher” event.  Everyone was fantastic!

The event raised a magnificent £784.90 which will now be divided between SAMH and CAMHS, two mental health charities.

  • A lesson has been prepared for Social Education classes.
  • Pupils will be asked to complete surveys about their mental health.
