Working Together to be Healthy: Inside and Out on Safer Internet Day
Happy Safer Internet Day everybody! On Tuesday 5th February 2019, people around the world will be talking and thinking about how we can work “Together for a better internet”. Here at Tynecastle High School, as part of our Children’s Mental Health Week celebrations, we are especially interested in the impact of our digital lives on our wellbeing.
We know that the internet brings a huge range of opportunities, but time online can also leave us feeling worried about its effects on our mental and physical health. What positive choices can we make in our digital lives, to keep ourselves Healthy: Inside and Out? And how can we work together, to support each other?
Join us at Tynecastle High School on Tuesday 5th February, 6.30pm-7.30pm (refreshments available from 6.15pm), for advice and discussion with folks from across the Tynecastle Learning Community. No need to book – just come along with your questions, ideas and curiosity! All parents, carers and students at Tynecastle and our associated primaries are welcome.
It’s Children’s Mental Health Week (4-10 February)!This week, Tynecastle High School are proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week – Place2Be’s annual campaign to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health.
This year’s theme is Healthy: Inside and Out and we’re encouraging everyone in the Tynecastle High School community to think about how they look after their bodies and minds. Physical and mental health are connected, so the simple things we do to look after our bodies can also help with how we feel.
This week in school we’ll be thinking about things like food, physical activity and sleep, plus the impact of our digital lives on physical and mental wellbeing. What positive choices can we make to keep ourselves as well as we can be?
If you’d like to get involved, we’d love your help in spreading the word. The Children’s Mental Health Week website has a range of resources, including tips for parents and carers.
For more information, you can also contact our Place2Be School Project Manager, Sarah Haywood.
