Year 9 Opening Minds

This half term’s Opening Minds topic is Healthy Relationships. Pupils in year 9 had a session with the ladies from Syeda. They talked about the media and their relationship with the media and how everything they see and hear isn’t always true or real. They also discussed self esteem and body image and how it is important to love yourself.

Year 9 Elements

Pupils explored Adrian Mole’s bedroom from the 1980s and compared it with a teenager’s bedroom today. Emma, Kiera and Claire acted out some extracts from the Secret Diary of Adrian Mole and compared them to life as a teenager now.

Red Nose Day

Pupils and staff at Springwell have raised over £200 for Red Nose Day. Pupils worse something red, bought noses and sold their baking. The care team had a sponsored make over and the staff did a sweepstake. Well done everyone, especially Emma in year Nine who was our fundraising co-ordinator.
