Respect Week

St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School & Sixth Form College hosted their ‘Respect week 2017’ event from 25th-29th September, their second following last years success.

Janet Kent, Service Manage for the Schools, Children and Family Wellbeing Service, joined the ‘Respect’ team delivering 18 mindfulness workshops across the school. Students learned about the great benefits of mindfulness in terms of relaxation, focus and dealing with stressful events like exams.

During the week a range of partnership agencies and organisations were invited into school as well as Catholic Care to provide informative educational sessions to students from all year groups. Sessions are carefully selected which will educate and allow students to gain information on a range of topics. This year sessions included The Teenage Cancer Trust, Barnardo’s Positive Identities team, West Yorkshire Police CSE/Hate Crime unit, Communications and Interaction team, Makin and Dixon Solicitors and Spectrum Health. All sessions are designed to promote diversity, teach respect and educate students on how to keep themselves safe.
