Gallen CS Notes (March 6)

Gallen CS

MENTAL HEALTH  AWARENESS DAY  FOR  CYCLE AGAINST SUICIDE 

Gallen CS  who  are Ambassadors for  Mental Health held a Mental Health Awareness Day in the school on Friday 17th February. The theme of the day was that 'It's ok not to be ok and it is absolutely ok to ask for help'. Students were encouraged to wear orange which is the signature colour of the Mental Health Awareness Day.

Among the Activities on the  Day were quizzes for first to third years and students involved in the School Ambassador Programme gave out free Miwadi Orange and Jaffa Cakes to all the students at break time.
