The theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 was ‘Movement’. Looking after mental health is just as important as physical health and the community was keen to celebrate both by encouraging the whole school to join in in our “Just Dance” event on the Paddock. The Lower Sixth pupils took the opportunity for peer leadership, they donned fancy dress, and led the dance from the Pavilion stage. We had appearances from cheerleaders, farmyard animals, and even Batman! Not quite the village people, but certainly well spirited as they led the whole school through the Macarena, Y.M.C.A, and the Cha Cha Slide. There was a real sense of community in this King’s first as pupils laughed and danced together as one school. There was even time for the School’s longest Conga line and a little bit of Taylor Swift.
