The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is
I know that all Middleton pupils and staff are great at spreading kindness so this week will come natural to us.
I am encouraging you to do two acts of kindness a day - one for someone else and one for yourself.
Have a look at the completed seven days of kindness calendar too. It has got some good ideas that you can use for your own kindness calendar. Maybe there will be a favourite activity that you like to do for someone else and you could continue doing it while we are in lockdown.
You might be finding it difficult at the moment because we have been with our household members for what feels like forever but showing kindness is especially important now as it will help you as a family to bond and get through the tough times together.
The acts of kindness towards yourself are the self-care activities that you enjoy doing and make you feel happy. These can be completed on your own but it is also ok for you to do it with others like when you go on a family bike ride.
