During Children’s Mental Health Week, the theme was Let’s Connect.  These are some of the lovely photos that were sent in of our pupils connecting with their families😊.

Members of the well-being club helped to pack shoes boxes, which will be sent to children overseas who are displaced in refugee camps or orphanages.  They wrote cards for these children to let them know that others are thinking of them.

Our Mental Health Ambassadors visited our local Tesco store to find out how the company help our local community.  We prepared hampers for groups in the local community and packaged and delivered bread to our local foodbank.  Well done Sacred Heart!
