This year, ten Year 7 & 8 students took part in an 8 week wellbeing programme called ‘Xpress Yourself’, fostering self-expression, confidence and positive coping skills for managing emotions. The students had lots of fun, creating collective pieces of art and drama. They all felt connected by the end of the sessions and left with lots of practical skills that will help them to manage their emotions.
