Active in Mind

We are pleased to be working with Active in Mind Athlete Mentor Programme again this year. This programme is a student-led intervention, designed to make use of physical activity as a proactive solution to mental health and wellbeing issues present within schools. The project is ran by 5 Young Mental Health Champions from Year 12, who will plan and deliver a ‘10 week’ intervention for 15 young people in year 7-9. The programme supports Etone’s Mental Health top tips; Connect; Be Active; Take Notice; Give and Keep Learning.

On Wednesday 24th April 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.
