On Thursday 11th October 2018 Grange Academy students and staff came dressed in yellow and donations to support mental health awareness. We raised an impressive £98. Secondary students got involved in a range of activities looking at what you can do to stay calm and reduce stressful situations. These included boxing and pad work, mindfulness and team building.

TJ: I can calm down using the breathing I learnt.

Jazmin: I was really laughing loud, it was fun.

Sam: Bubbles and breathing are calm. I blew a double bubble.

Hannah: The laughing lesson was so funny.

Jaiden: Boxing and pad work was fun. Everyone sweats a lot and I really enjoyed it.

Jamie: It was really fun hitting the pads with boxing gloves. I liked the punching to release stress. I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it but it was really good. It was great to use positive energy. I liked the relaxation part at the end and using visualisation to get rid of anger and worries.

Tanvir: The boxing was hard work and tired me out.

Natasha: I liked the relaxation part the best. I felt warm and happy at the end of a fun session.

Jennifer: Everyone was wearing yellow clothes, it made me feel happy. It was for Mental Health awareness; we were raising money for charity. I enjoyed the team building activity, everyone had to use the pipes to slide the balls. Sometimes we have to work together.

Thamid: I did some pad work in the hall with Ms Charnock. It was fun, my partner was Robert. I wasn’t worried about getting hurt, we followed the instructions. I was better at blocking the punches.

Kate: I liked the music on Hello Yellow day. It was relaxing, gentle music, I was feeling calm and happy.
