28 Jan Children’s Mental Health Week
From 1-7 February 2021, Alexandra Primary School will be taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This is a yearly event, organised by the children’s mental health group Place2Be. The theme for this year’s week is “Express Yourself”. According to Place2Be, “self-expression is about communicating your individuality. This can be through words, clothing and hairstyle, or through art forms such as writing, drawing, music and dance.” In circle time, the children will be exploring a different form of self-expression each day. Place2Be and Alexandra Primary School believe that “by expressing ourselves thoughtfully, we can better communicate, collaborate and build a community with others” especially in times of hardship and crisis.
