Following the success of the Mental Fitness Ambassador (MFA) scheme in Senior School, we have recently introduced the programme to our Junior School.
In November, Mrs Benson led a training session aided by four members of the sixth form MFA team, with 13 ambassadors from J3 and J4 selected from more than 40 applications.
Mrs Benson said: “I have seen first-hand what a positive impact the Mental Fitness Ambassadors have had in the Senior School and I am delighted that we have 13 very enthusiastic ambassadors ready and raring to go in Juniors.
