Thanks to Mrs Stevens for organising and all the staff who supported.
Statistics show that those most likely to struggle with problem gambling are men aged 16-25. In order to educate students about the dangers of online gambling, Tom from Gambler’s Anonymous gave a talk to Year 12 boys about the industry and shared his own story.
Thanks to Tom for coming in and for the Sixth Form team for their support in organising this, the boys were all really engaged and moved by Tom’s words.
Well-being team members Sophie S, George M and Alice V started handing out teacher uplifts today.
The girls have spent a huge amount of time creating a Christmas themed thank you card for every member of staff at the school including teaching staff, support staff, administrative staff, cleaning staff and canteen staff. They also managed to get enough chocolate Freddo’s donated to accompany each of them. Some of the departments visited so far include: social sciences, science, geography and history departments.
Well done girls, what a brilliant, thoughtful idea to boost members of staff’s mood in the last few weeks of term!
