We were all delighted in St. Stephen’s to launch our Amber Flag campaign on Wednesday, December 2nd. 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone and it is so important that we look after our Mental Health and the Well-Being of our children. As part of our initiative to promote Well-Being and good Mental Health in our school we are making every Wednesday “Well-Being Wednesday” a day where the boys can spend some time doing the activities that they love. This could be extra art, music, drama or simply getting outside for some fresh air. We look forward to hopefully getting the Amber Flag!
We love keeping you updated with lots of photos showing the boys having fun in school. Check out the links below to see some of the fantastic work that has been happening in St. Stephen’s as we work towards trying to be awarded with the Amber Flag:
