The day was a combined House and PSHE Day. PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Economic education and focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep young people healthy and safe and to prepare them for life.
The students in Years 7 and 8 engaged in workshops on Media Literacy and Digital Citizenship, to understand our digital footprint, how our information is used and how to protect ourselves online.
The competitive element of the day was a House Day cross country challenge, it was a hot and sweaty day, but we saw some fantastic running.
The Year 9, 10 and 11 students participated in either Kindness or Wellbeing workshops. The Kind Campaign is an internationally recognised non-profit organisation that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying through their global movement and the workshop was well received by the girls. The Wellbeing workshops were delievered to the boys by Mr Mann, Mr Bull, Mr Lindsay and Mr Tuckley and focused on dealing with stress, developing resilience, and building relationships.
In addition, the Year 11 students participated in an Elevate Education study skills workshop on Time Management in prepearation for their upcoming exams later this academic year.
The students also participated in a highly competitive House volleyball tournament.
The Year 12 and 13 students had focused sessions on the core components of the IB; the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge as well as career guidance/university applications. Year 12 also participated in an Elevate Education revision workshop on Memory Mnemonics.
We look forward to our next House and PSHE Day, which will take place Friday 4th December.
