We all struggle with how we’re feeling sometimes and it’s normal to have ups and downs.

This last year might have felt a little more down than up. 

But it’s the little things that have got us through it – singing in the shower, the perfect pizza, that Netflix show that got us all buzzing, the bestie you can share worries with, the teachers who have your back.

Saying #HelloYellow this World Mental Health Day is a little thing we can do to make a BIG difference to young people’s mental health.

So on Friday 8th you are invited to:

wear a yellow accessory to school (school uniform as normal please)

bring a voluntary donation of £1 for the Young Minds mental health charity 

bring in some money… for the cake sale and to buy a yellow ribbon

join in activities in the atrium at lunch-time

enjoy music from our fabulous music department at various times during the day

Our virtual open evening took place on Monday 4th October 2021 at 6.30pm. Unfortunately, we were unable to invite families actually into the building, but we hope the event provided an insight into the school, how we work and who we are. The event included a presentation by the Headteacher, plus an opportunity for questions and answers.

Attendance at the virtual opening evening was by invitation only and visitors registered to be invited to the webinar.

Year 11 Duke of Edinburgh update

Dear parent/carer,

Due to the unfortunate circumstances of the last 2 summer’s the current year 11 students have been unable to complete their expedition. This is obviously a very important year for them regarding their academic studies, therefore, I am suggesting that if they would like to complete their expedition they will have opportunity to do this during the summer term after their examinations. It will be a 2 day, 1 night expedition and dates will be confirmed over the next couple of months and further details regarding payment will follow.

If they do not wish to complete their expedition but have completed their physical, skill and volunteering on eDofE they can opt to just receive a certificate of participation.

Please ensure that they are continuing to work towards the skill, physical and volunteering section of the award if they are wishing to complete the expedition as it is a requirement to have this aspect finished.

If you do have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0151 733 2709 or info@st-hildas.co.uk

Miss L Flavin
DofE Manager
