In hope to raise awareness for mental health this week, Mrs. Sharples and Mrs. Pritchard arranged a ‘giving back’ activity at break time for both Year 12 and 13 students.
As we have done for many years, students have been taking part in the YTF scheme, with a reading group meeting every Wednesday to share books published in 2016.
Kingsmead have continued to promote reading for pleasure for our students, and impressing on those less keen how important a life skill reading is.
Recent letters home and a revision programme are available in the Year 11 letters section of the website and in the attachments of this news item.
These include a slide show explaining the rules and expectations during the exam period as well as information about the prom.
Every second week in May, since 2000, the Mental Health Foundation hosts Mental Health Awareness Week.
