The second week of October brought Wellbeing Week, a week designed to raise awareness around physical and mental wellbeing. Each day was dedicated to a different aspect of wellbeing and to show their support, staff and members of the Sixth Form wore a variety of colours depending on the theme for each day, with students being able to show their support for "taking notice" by wearing orange on the charity non-uniform day on Wednesday.
Mr Laferton, teacher of Economics, has been a core part of this year’s Wellbeing Week. Last Sunday, he ran the Oxford Half Marathon for the charity Support for the Sick Newborn and their Parents (otherwise known as SSNAP). Mr Lafterton’s son, Joel, was in need of specialist care this year and SSNaP was able to provide "amazing support in January 2019” to the family.
On non-uniform day students gave a £2 donation, which combined with the £1,500 Mr Laferton raised on his fundraising website meant over £4,000 was donated to SSNaP overall.If you would like to donate to this cause, please follow this link
