Issue 9 - 8 November 2019

Wellbeing Award

Meadow High School is excited to be starting a new project this year aimed at helping our school prepare and equip themselves to promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole-school community.

The award is called the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS) and has been developed in partnership with the National Children's Bureau (NCB). They believe that an education system where good emotional wellbeing and mental health are at the heart of the culture and ethos of all schools, can build confidence and support children to flourish.

The aim of completing this project is to recognise the work that Meadow currently does and to identify key areas for development in order to better support the wellbeing of all staff and students on a daily basis.

If you have any questions or would like to be involved in the project, then please email Mrs Heggie for more details.     cheggie@meadowhighschool.org       


Duke of Edinburgh— Litter Picking 

The Duke of Edinburgh students have continued to enjoy their volunteering section. In half a term we are amazed and pleased to announce that between them they have picked up 99.75kg of rubbish from Hillingdon..... that's the same weight as a baby Elephant! 

With 4 months still to go we are aiming high and wonder if we can pick up it's Mum or Dad too!

Children In Need Day—Next Friday—15 November 2019

Next Friday, 15th November, it is Children in Need and, in true Meadow style, we are hoping to spend the day fundraising.

The School Council will meet to discuss and plan the details of the day in their first council meeting on Friday 8th November and discuss whether we will just run fundraising events during the day or have a fayre.

As we are unsure of the events, please send your child in with loose change, so that they can participate in the various activities (I am sure there will be a cake sale!)

The theme is Heroes and pupils can dress up on the day, this can include Superheroes, or anyone who they deem to be heroes (the police, firemen, nurses, paramedics or their next door neighbour who helps them).

There will not be a charge for dressing up. All monies raised on the day will be split between our chosen charity and Children in Need.

Miss Bhopal—Assistant Headteacher
