On Tuesday, students took part in five separate PSHE-related activities on a carousel throughout the day:
Warrington Youth Service – are a team who provide preventative education, early intervention, counselling, family support and training in relation to Young People, specifically focusing this time on the abuse of Legal Highs, especially Volatile Substances.
Catch 22 – advisors from this not-for-profit business ran this awareness activity to help students learn about Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), how to recognise it and how to keep safe.
The Money Charity – this charity’s vision is for everyone to be on top of their money as a part of everyday life. So, they aimed to empower students to build the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours to make the most their money throughout their life.
RAF Event – This personal development activity workshop involved you completing a variety of mentally and physically challenging activities (team tasks and physical fitness). The aim is to develop leadership, teamwork, confidence, and communication skills, whilst giving you the opportunity to speak to soldiers and officers about the opportunities available in a career in the RAF.
KOOTH.COM – A unique service that provides vulnerable young people, who have emotional or mental health problems, with free, confidential advice and support when they need it most. Year 7 students also benefitted from this invaluable input.
