Good afternoon,

Slightly later this afternoon - just been a busy day....

First Aid Champions:  The British Red Cross have created resources so that young people can learn first aid from home.  Looks really good - https://firstaidchampions.redcross.org.uk/

Mental Health Awareness Week:  This week, always important, but even more so in these challenging times is next week (beginning 18th May).  We will be publishing more resources in the coming days, but you can find more national information at https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week

Reading lists:  We publish a list of recommended reading for each of our year groups - we have just added a new one for Year 10 - https://www.waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk/curriculum/we-are-a-reading-school  

Sports Leader Applications:  Please remind all Year 8s to check their emails for a message from Mrs Sweeney and encourage them to apply for the Sports Leaders programme.

Action for Happiness:  There is a good resource at the end of this update, with translations into other languages.  The smartphone app is also useful - have a look at https://www.actionforhappiness.org/smartphone-app

Best wishes and stay safe....
