Today’s ‘Cake and Catch-Up’ session allowed our 1st Year pupils to properly meet and chat to our new Upper Sixth ACHE counsellors. This was an informal occasion to put some names to faces and explain to 1st Year pupils about the advice and support offered by these specially trained Sixth Formers. The gathering also served as a reminder of World Mental Health Day, emphasising the importance of discussing our mental health and seeking help if needed.
It was encouraging to witness the positive engagement between our 1st Year pupils and the new ACHE recruits. We plan to organise more of these informal sessions throughout the year.
