Year 7 PSHE and Year 11 Careers Day

Yesterday (Tuesday 20th), Year 7 students took part in a special PSHE day which explored the consequences of smoking. Students took part in team challenges to discover how smoking can impact a person’s general health and wellbeing. There was a treasure hunt for information, and all students worked in teams to produce a radio advert aimed at teenagers, which they performed in front of their peers. The students conducted themselves brilliantly throughout the day, and demonstrated creativity, responsibility and resilience.
