Parental Engagement Event – Mental Health and Wellbeing
As you know, mental health and wellbeing is a very important issue in the busy modern world we live in. At Cardinal Pole, we are always looking for ways to support our parents and carers to meet the demands placed on them and so we are very pleased to invite you to an informal event on the topic of mental health and wellbeing. We are pleased that a speaker from CAMHS (Childhood and Adolescent mental Health Service) will be there to deliver a presentation and then afterwards will stay around to answer any questions you may have on this important topic. Our Parent Liaison Officer, Mr Courtney Brown, will also be present and will be happy to meet with you.
This event will take place in school on Thursday 14th December from 5.30-7.00pm.
Light refreshments will be served.
