🟣Mental Health Awareness Week🟣

Taken from the Sion School ISI Inspection Report:

"Leaders actively promote pupils' wellbeing. The school has recently introduced mental health first-aid training for staff that, together with a school counsellor, helps effectively ...support pupils' wellbeing. Pupils are encouraged to speak out if they have concerns and they are proud to recognise the school as inclusive.

Pupils are taught the day-to-day importance of the school's motto, 'Consideration Always' and this is reflected in the respectful behaviour within the school community and modelled by the staff" - ISI Inspection Report, November 2023

Six of our students were successful in getting on to the very prestigious and sought after National Youth Theatre summer course.

All the courses have reserve lists and we know that last year alone NYT auditioned over 7000 young people and around 700 successfully gained a place on the ...course.

We are so proud of
Annie
India
Sofia
Finley
Roman
Cameron

These students have all been offered a 10 day course taking place in selected cities of (their choice) in this case London or Bristol.

If they complete the course they will become NYT members and be offered countless creative/courses/productions opportunities, in short a huge door opened in the performance industry.
The alumni that they will work alongside is priceless in itself.

Congratulations to all.

Challenge Plus in Maths:

Students from Year 9 were challenged to find the areas of polygons inscribed within circles. This challenging task forced the students to collaborate effectively and utilise their Trigonometry and Pythagoras skills. Well done to pairs Olivia & James, Syd & ...Megan, Owen & Cameron and Roman & Stanley who wrote some excellent summaries of their findings.

🟣Mental Health Awareness Week🟣
Do you remember the joy and excitement when the school bell rang for break time? Fun and laughter alongside movement increases your motivation and the psychological benefits.

Movement is a great way to enhance our wellbeing. Even a short burst of ...10 minutes’ brisk walking can boost our mood and increase our mental alertness and energy. Movement helps us feel better about our bodies and improve self-esteem. It can also help reduce stress and anxiety and help us to sleep better.

Year 10 students were given the task of researching the impact of the external environment on two related businesses (one high end and one lower end business in the same industry). We were treated to some very interesting, well researched and professional looking presentations.

The process of emerging from the chrysalis is called eclosing. The butterfly will pop out of the chrysalis case and then hang on to it while it expands its wings. Year 4 and Year 5 observed this happening this morning.
All butterflies were very healthy much to the joy of the children and their... teachers!

🟣It's Mental Health Awareness Week! (Monday 13th - Sunday 19th May 2024)🟣

This year’s theme is movement: moving more for our mental health.

When life’s busy, it can be tricky finding time for wellbeing-boosting activities. But finding moments for movement might be... easier than you think. Why not use the time you spend waiting for things, to move more? When you’re waiting for the bus; for the advert on your phone to finish playing; standing in a queue; or for your dinner to cook. These moments will add up!

At Sion School, everybody from the very youngest students in our nursery, throughout the junior school, senior school and right up to those in our sixth form have opportunities to be active and physical in some capacity every single day.
