World Mental Health Day: Tea & Talk or Coffee & Chat

To mark World Mental Health Day, the pupils in Year 13 and Year 14 decide to spread a little joy around school. They made, packed and delivered Rice Krispie Treats to every class in the school. The Busy Bees from the Beehive Cafe hosted a Tea & Talk morning in the school staff room. The pupils worked in 15 minutes shifts over break time, serving tea, coffee and great conversation. Scott even treated some staff to a stand up comedy routine. After looking after others, they took time to look after themselves with coffee, computer games, pool, a walk to the beach and then finished off with a cone of their favourite ice cream. Well done to all the pupils in our Key Stage 5 Hive. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ
