PSHE Activities for 2022-23
By Miss Munro-Hall, Head of PSHE
We have a number of PSHE activities lined up this term. As Trust Consultants for PSHE across the GDST, Mrs Ferguson from Junior School and I ran the GDST PSHE Autumn conference on Wednesday at trust office. We spoke about our focus this year being the ‘Living in the Wider world’ area of PSHE and hope to improve resources and provision across the trust in this area.
Our activities at NHEHS start on the 10th of October, which is World Mental Health Day, when we have Cat Williams coming in to lead an assembly and then run a workshop with our Year 10 Wellbeing Leads and Head Girls’ Team. Cat is an expert on Student and Staff Mental Health, Mind-set, Resilience, Relationships and Well-Being. She is a TEDx and award-winning speaker as well as a Rapid Transformational Therapist, Relationship therapist and Strengths Psychology coach specialising in children and young people.
Before half term we will be focusing on Black History Month throughout October and after half term we will be running activities around Anti-Bullying Week (November 14-18th) with our new Year 9 Wellbeing Leads.
There are also a couple of Parent Talks for your diaries coming up on Zoom this term. Elent Financial will be talking about student loans on 11th October.
Clinical Psychologist and Author Dr Tara Porter will be returning to give a talk on Understanding Girls on November 26th at 6pm, also on Zoom.
Looking further ahead, we will be supporting Children’s Mental Health Week (February 6-12th), International Women’s Day (March 8th) among other initiatives. In the summer, we look forward to supporting the Just One Tree initiative again on May 24th and a Diversity Week in June.
