On Thursday 1st March here at King’s Hill, the children and the staff celebrated World Book Day. We also used this as an opportunity to raise awareness of mental health issues that so many youngsters face.
We feel that through reading, particularly stories/fiction, the mind can be helped to deal with the stresses of life. Books/stories can help individuals overcome obstacles and move forward with their life, help get them through difficult situations and bring about feelings of hope and positivity.
Children were asked to donate £1 towards the mental health charity being supported by the Mayor of Walsall this year.
We invited the Mayor and Mayoress to come to our school and undertake a challenge which was to help serve food in our new kitchen. They were both very happy to do so.
The children were really excited as were the staff.
We presented them with a cheque for £250 for the Mayor’s charity.
We would like to thank the Mayor and Mayoress for coming along today. It was great fun!
