Recently, Wokingham in Need helped organise and run a unique workshop with their Year Six class at Nine Mile Ride School to help raise awareness of Mental Heath Wellbeing with a focus on anxiety and metal issues that affects us all.
We’ve been blown away by the incredible support we’ve received from the children and teachers at Nine Mile Ride School and how incredibly mature all of the students were about the subject. We were incredibly inspired and moved to see so many children taking action and showing their support.
We were even more moved to receive a letter of thanks from the teachers and children:
I would like to thank Wokingham In Need for sponsoring you to come into school on Tuesday afternoon and for providing such wonderful, motivational workshops for the Year 6 children. Without exception, they all had a great afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed trying out the circus skills. It was delightful to see the looks on their faces and hear the whoops of delight, as they mastered the skills.
Providing such a fun distraction for the children during SATs week was of course an added bonus!
Thanks also go to the organisers of this Wokingham Wellbeing event who provided a super opportunity for our children.
