Children’s Mental Health Week

It’s Children’s Mental Health Week!

Tynecastle High School is proud to support Children’s Mental Health Week [https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/], which is run by Place2Be to shine a light on children and young people’s mental health in February each year. This year’s theme is ‘Find Your Brave’.

Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone. Finding your brave can build your confidence, self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself.

Life often throws challenges our way. Bravery isn’t about coping alone or holding things in. It’s about finding positive ways to deal with things that might be difficult, overcoming physical and mental challenges and looking after yourself.

Parents and carers play a big role in helping young people to Find Their Brave. Tap or click here [https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/parents-and-carers/] for some top tips.

Head Teacher’s Update:

It feels like no time at all since Christmas and yet here we are with another holiday almost upon us. We have been very busy here with prelims for our Senior Phase students, course choice for S2-5 and the finalising of our Curriculum Review. There have been a couple of opportunities to let our hair down and the Burn’s Night organised by our Parent/Carer Council was one such event and considered by many to be the best one yet. I hope that you have a good February break from Monday 10 February and we look forward to welcoming everyone back on Monday 17 February.
