Whole School Projects 2018-19

We’re all working together; that’s the secret. 

We are working on the following whole school projects this year....want to get involved?

Action for Happiness

Why? Happiness is about our lives as a whole: it includes the fluctuating feelings we experience everyday but also our overall satisfaction with life. It is influenced by our genes, upbringing and external circumstances. But crucially it is also influenced by our choices - our attitudes, our values and our sense of purpose. There will be opportunities for pupils of all ages to get involved in activities from the Action for Happiness Toolkit.

Kind School Award

Why? Kindness UK is a not-for-profit organisation with the goal of making kindness a greater part of everyone’s daily lives and increasing awareness of the positive benefits of kindness to health and the overall wellbeing of society. It believes that every day should be filled with kindness.  There will be opportunities for pupils of all ages to get involved in activities promoting kindness.
