In HETNS this week, all classes were actively engaging in World Mental Health Week activities, particularly on Thursday 10/10, on World Mental Health Day. All classes practised their deep breathing exercises and in senior classes, there were insightful and deep discussions about how we can help our minds stay as healthy as our bodies. Some of the suggestions were restful nights’ sleep, in fact Poppy from Roseanne’s class told us between the ages of 9 and 13, children’s bodies are rapidly developing and 8 to 10 hours sleep is encouraged for optimum functioning. Others suggested exercise (running, walking and sports), reading, jigsaws and maths activities as a way of switching off our thoughts and focusing on something else. We would encourage everyone to find five or ten minutes a day to stop and breathe, breathe deeply, feel it in your belly, switch off your mind and relax in the middle of a busy day. Here’s some of Bernadine’s 5th class posters, telling us all to think of our minds and help each other.
