Together with 6 local schools we participated in a wellbeing workshop and a day filled with positivity and opportunity to develop skills to become Brilliant Cumbria 'Wellbeing Ninja'. The workshops were delivered by Andy Cope and Will Hussey and developed our skills in mental wealth across our school, community and beyond. We then took these skills out and spread happiness and positivity in our school and local community.
