Mental Health Awareness Non-Uniform Day (Years 7-10) Thursday 7 February

Our Mental Health Champions are running a campaign at Millthorpe School to help raise awareness of mental health and to promote positive mental wellbeing. As part of their campaign, they are holding assemblies next week and joining in with a National Campaign: Time to Talk Day on 7 February. On this day, students in Years 7 to 10 are invited to come in non-uniform and can partake in activities including sponge the teacher, dodgeball and a bake sale. We are asking for a £1 donation for the non-uniform, which can be paid via ParentPay or in cash on the day; and any donations of baked goods would be gratefully received: please deliver to C8 on Thursday morning (and please clearly mark anything containing nuts).

All monies raised will be used to support future initiatives at Millthorpe to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

Please note that, as all Year 11s will be sitting Pre-Public Examinations on that day, they will all need to come in full uniform, as this is a requirement when taking part in examinations.
