We are delighted to be involved with Active in Mind Athlete Mentor Programme. This programme is designed to help promote the importance of staying active in helping to improve and keep positive mental health.
On Monday 12th June Etones’ Active in Mind programme got underway with the Sixth Form Mental Health Champions working with our professional athlete mentor, Yasmin Clark. Yasmin is a former professional tennis player who competed at Junior Wimbledon in 2005/2006. She now coaches tennis to people of all ages and abilities in Derbyshire.
The Mental Health Champions took part in a number of tasks throughout the morning including learning all about what it takes to become a mentor and planning activities ready to deliver to our year 7 – 9 students. During the afternoon the sixth formers worked alongside Yasmin to teach the lower school pupils the importance of good physical health and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to support positive mental wellbeing.
Our sixth formers are looking forward to continuing this programme and leading a series of sessions with our pupils, aiming to give them lots of knowledge about keeping active and leading healthy lifestyles. Taking part in this programme is an important aspect for use at Etone College as staying active is one of our 5 Top Tips for taking care of your wellbeing. We would like to thank Active in Mind for the fantastic day enjoyed by all involved.
