In 2018 the Wellbeing Society was established as a group of KS3 students completed their 2 hours of external training with Eikon, in order to become Level 2 Wellbeing Ambassadors. This is a peer-led initiative and since the completion of their training, the ambassadors have helped Gordon’s School to achieve their Silver Surrey Healthy Schools Award. The students created and presented a week of assemblies in order to promote the 5 steps to wellbeing and also ran a pop up compliments cards stall in June, to raise awareness of ‘Feeling Good Week’.
The Wellbeing Ambassadors have exciting plans for 2018-19 as they plan to launch a ‘Feelings Box’ to help the wider student community to communicate their concerns, thoughts and feelings. They will be working with the school counsellors and nurses to roll out this initiate. The Wellbeing Ambassadors wish to work with the pastoral team in creating a monthly wellbeing bulletin that will be communicated to students via email.
