Creative Club back in full swing

As an Amber Flag School, we are firmly committed to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in the lives of our students. Every Thursday and Friday lunch break, 1st Years are invited to Creative Club. There they can play a wide range of board games, take part in a series of mental challenges, do some mindful colouring, make shapes & create designs out of clay and listen to music. Creative Club helps to create a fun and relaxing environment for students. They learn to develop the social skills that are needed to help build and sustain friendships.
