Hello Yellow 2023

At a time when it’s needed most, our school community came together for #HelloYellow on World Mental Health Day to support young people’s mental health. St Katherine's School joined thousands of other schools, offices and community groups on Tuesday 10th October who were also taking part in #HelloYellow. The school was awash in vibrant yellow with staff and students wearing something yellow to show our commitment to creating a community where mental health and wellbeing is valued.

Students used tutor time to talk about what they would do if they were worried about themselves or a friend and discussed scenarios that they may experience in school and what to do when this happens. This served as an opportunity to signpost the support on offer to students in school and in their communities and raise awareness of what we can do to help. Resilience is one of our school values and students were reminded that there are things they can do themselves to improve and protect their mental health including getting enough sleep, exercising, eating well and talking about their worries.

We are still counting the money raised by the event that will go to Young Minds and hope we can beat last year's figure of £123!
