Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, remember to always be kind to yourself and to others. There are lots of ways to look after your mental health, doing something you enjoy like playing, drawing or keeping your body active even if it is only going for a walk with your family.

I go for a walk everyday on the beach or to the lighthouse, exercise is great for your mental health.

Miss Tweedie takes her dogs out for a walk everyday and loves playing with them in her garden. 

Mrs Cooling loves going for a walk or a run to relax and keep her mind healthy.

Miss Corry enjoys spending time with her family and walking along the beach. Miss Corry says this helps her to relax and stay happy.


I would love to see what you are all doing at home to look after yourself, keep happy and relax, you can email me some pictures smiley 


Today I sent my best friend a postcard, I know this will make her happy when she reads it. You could post a letter or picture to someone you miss.
