Staff 10 day challenge for Jospice

Over 40 staff from Chesterfield High School embarked on a 10 day challenge in May to raise funds for Jospice. The staff from across the school ran, cycled or walked over 3,000 miles during the 10 day challenge raising over £1,000 for Jospice. A great achievement by everyone whilst raising some much needed funds for our local hospice.

Well done to everyone to took part and big thanks to Mr Hynes for organising the challenge.

The Duchess of Cambridge to lead an online assembly on mental wellbeing among children

The Duchess of Cambridge will lead an online assembly for the Oak National Academy during which she will speak about the importance of mental wellbeing among children. The theme of the Duchess’ assembly is ‘spread a little kindness’ and is based on a lesson plan which is available on the Mentally Healthy Schools platform. This platform was developed in collaboration with children’s mental health charity Place2Be and encourages children to explore ways in which they can show kindness and recognise the benefits of kindness to others.

The Mentally Healthy Schools platform can be accessed here:

The assembly will be live on the Oak National Academy website at 11am on Thursday 18 June and can be accessed here:

A recording of the assembly will be available to view on the Oak National Academy website following the event.
