Ready for a rest? Happy Holidays!

Children’s Mental Health Week is coming to a close, and as the school holiday approaches, today in school we have been focussing on the role of sleep in keeping ourselves Healthy: Inside and Out. New research from Place2Be shows that sleep is connected with worrying: of the 1,100 10-11 and 13-15 year-olds who were surveyed in this new research, those who slept fewer than 9 hours per night were more likely to say they often don’t know what to do when they are worried — and that once they start worrying, they cannot stop.

With that in mind, we wish you all a safe and restful holiday – with plenty of sleep, if that’s what you need. And don’t forget that, after the holiday,  Place2Be staff will still be on hand to support students, families and staff with everything to do with mental health and emotional wellbeing – including issues around sleep. Contact Sarah Haywood, our Place2Be School Project Manager, for more information. Happy holidays!

Safer Internet Day 2019

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.
