MHAW Mental Health Awareness Week

Kia Ora everyone, 

Some of you may already know that it's Mental Health Awareness Week(MHAW) this week. The theme is to take time to kōrero!

There are heaps of activities being posted on the school Insta page: @edgewatercollege and all of these activities can also be found in these Google Slides that were sent out to Mentor classes earlier this week.

Some of the staff and students have put together activities for you all to participate in - and one of them is the Whānau Pass the Note Challenge. You need to try to get as many videos of you and your mates from your house to 'pass a note of something you're grateful for' in order to win the competition. 

The Staff have made an example video of what the 'pass the note' challenge looks like - here. You will need to use your school Gmail to access it. Send your videos to [email protected] by THURSDAY (tomorrow 4 pm) this week. The winning Whānau will have the most videos and will be announced on Friday!

Another activity where you can make a shout out to someone who has helped your mental health this year is through the Mental Health Champions form. Nominate another student who you think looks after others mental health and they go in the draw to win some vouchers at the end of the week 😄 The form for that is here

Finally, today is the "Guess the who, what, where" mentor competition. A free afternoon tea for the winning mentor for when we get back to school is up for grabs! All you need to do is get a friend or two from your mentor, (or connect with your mentor teacher is they have been in touch), follow the instagram page and "guess" what each picture is. If you don't have access to insta, the pictures will also be available on the slideshow too and you can submit your answers to [email protected]n.edgewater.school.nz to represent your mentor!

Take time to kōrero with those you love and trust!

Sending lots of aroha, from the MHAW crew
