Dame Kelly Holmes Trust Covid and Me
Four year 9 students were invited to take part in the Dame Kelly Holmes ‘Covid and Me’ zoom session. Athlete mentor Suzanne Miller - champion badminton superstar achieving a haul of national and international accolades, was the host for the afternoon.
The students were an asset to the school, giving their feedback around what they have learnt about themselves during the pandemic and the aspects of life they now have so much appreciation for. They explored the Stress Container Model and some of the coping strategies they have put into place to manage their mood and feelings during lockdown. Suzanne talked about her own personal circumstances of overcoming challenges and adversity and covered the 5 Ways to Wellbeing to help us all think about the steps for survival during such a testing time: Connecting to others – Keep learning – Take notice of our surroundings – Get active – Give to others
