We celebrated the end of Children’s Mental Health Week today with children being brave joining in the lunchtime karaoke session!
Lauren and Freddie from YPS BWD came into school this afternoon to meet with some of the students and to collect the ballot box they left last week which we used to vote in the Blackburn with Darwen Youth Elections earlier in the week. Lauren found her brave, getting up to sing and sign in the lunch time Karaoke session with pupils.
In the lunchtime club on Thursday, pupils were brave when they tried out a new sport - curling - where they helped each other to use the strange new equipment and learn a new something new.
In the weekly assemblies in both schools at the end of the afternoon we celebrate all the brave things we have done this week and shared photos of them with everyone.
We had a real hero in our midst because today, Michelle one of our fantastic Education, Health and Care Assistants, witnessed a car flip over on the M65 on her way to work.
She stopped and helped the man out of the car, who was thankfully unhurt, but shaken up.
She then passed on her details to the emergency shrives, and dashed off to make sure she got to school on time!
Proof if we need it, that not all heroes wear a cape - well done Michelle you are our brave hero of the week!
