On Thursday 9th October, we said #HelloYellow as our staff all wore yellow in solidarity. Why, you may ask? For our young people. This date signified Mental Health Awareness Day and we chose to raise money for the Young Minds Mental Health charity. As well as staff donating to the charity, we hope that wearing yellow raised awareness to help normalise and encourage our students to seek help and talk about their mental health. At Arena Academy, we strive to work in an environment which is sensitive to the stress which education can cause – and are therefore supported in maintaining a ‘healthy mind and body’.
Staff contributed and helped raise money towards the Young Minds Total of £66,000.
