Mental Health Awareness Week


Hello everyone

We have been asked to take part in Mental Health Awareness week this week so we are taking a break from our LCHS Challenges (I don't think it could have come at a more perfect time). 

Theme for this year is 'kindness' and we have a variety of different activities that you could do in order to show kindness to yourself and to others. You can chose to do as many or as little of the activities as you like and if you could send us a picture or email us what you did, that would be wonderful.

Activities:

  • Practice mindfulness by colouring mandalas, listening to meditation music or sitting outside to hear the birds.
  • Remind yourself for something that you are proud of.
  • Write down three things that you are grateful for.
  • Meditate.
  • Try something new.
  • Take a nap.
  • Write about a dream or a goal - no matter how unrealistic you think it actually is.
  • Pay a compliment to someone that you are at home with.
  • Post a nice note through a neighbour's door to let them know you are thinking of them.
  • Smile and say hello to people if you are out exercising.
  • Check in on a friend and ask how they are doing.
  • Thank a special person in your life.
  • Leave something on a friend's doorstep to brighten their day.
Below are some links to peaceful music:
 
 
 
 
How to do a simple meditation:
 
1. Find a quiet space. Using a cushion or chair, sit up straight but not stiff (allow your head and shoulders to rest comfortably). Place your hands on the tops of your legs with your upper arms at your sides.
 
2. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and relax. Feel the fall and rise of your chest and the changes in your stomach area. With each breath notice a coolness as it enters your body and a warmth as it exits. Don't control your breath, just follow the natural flow.
 
3. Thoughts will try to pull your attention away from the breath. Notice them but don't get distracted by them. Some people count their breaths in order to stay focused. 
 
4. Try to sit like this for 10 minutes. You may only manage a few minutes the first time but the more you practice, the longer you will be able to sit like this. 


Good luck and take care,

Ms Guyon

Message to year 11 and 13 students of LCHS

Dear year 11 and year 13 students of LCHS

We are living in extraordinary times.  I know that the recent announcement from the government to close schools and to cancel the 2020 summer exams will have stirred up a whole mix of emotions.  These will range from anger and disappointment to relief.  I wanted you to know that your school has not forgotten about you and that we are here to help you through these uncertain times.

Who knows how they will decided to play the results and certification of this exam series, but rest assured, we will do our part to ensure you gain the recognition you deserve through certification.

I also know that some of you will be upset at the realisation that your school career at LCHS has come to an end very abruptly and you did not have the chance to do all those nice things which students get to do when they reach such a milestone: a leavers’ assembly, saying goodbye to friends and teachers, year books, proms, parties and prize giving events.  Therefore, I wanted to give you all the guarantee that, when we get to the other side of this pandemic, I will do everything possible to offer you these traditional rites of passage you so deserve to have.  This may be in the new academic year – but you will get them – I promise.

For now, I only want to say how sorry I am that you have been put in this situation and wish you the very best in the months ahead.

This is still your school; we have not forgotten you and we will fight for you every step of the way to ensure you get the recognition you deserve.

Look after yourselves, your loved ones and one another.

See you on the other side!

Mr Mckeown
