Just the Colour Yellow Made us Smile

#HelloYellow day at Downlands was bright and sunny – not just the weather but also the yellow clothes worn by the students. There were bananas (Mrs Ridley and Teddy Weller!), yellow hats, yellow hair bands, yellow socks, yellow t-shirts, yellow sweatshirts and even yellow pants (but we didn’t see them!). Thank you to all the pastoral team for organising a brilliant day to mark World Mental Health Day and raising so much money (over £1300 in total) for the charity YoungMinds. The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. We joined the fight today for young people’s mental health and we are proud to have taken part.
