#HELLOYELLOW ON WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY
Students at Prince Henry’s will be holding a yellow themed cake sale to raise awareness of mental health on Thursday 10th October. The #HelloYellow campaign is an opportunity to raise funds for Young Minds which is the children and young people’s mental health charity.
Jade Zelkowicz, Community Fundraising Manager from YoungMinds, said: ‘We know that young people face a huge range of pressures, including exam stress, bullying and concerns about body image. When these pressures become overwhelming, it can be an incredibly isolating experience and the smallest gesture of support can make a huge difference.’
Mrs Thorner said ‘This cake sale is part of many different events where we can highlight the importance of mental health and get people talking about it. Our students, their friends and families may know or be someone who is experiencing mental health issues. As a school it is important to us that we do what we can to support one another whether that is through fundraising or by just encouraging our students to talk about their worries or concerns.’
