Pupils, students and staff at QEGS have raised over £500 for ‘Young Minds’, a charity that helps young people and their families concerned about mental health and wellbeing.

 The QEGS community was encouraged to ‘wear something yellow’ on the 9th October and donate £2, as part of the charity’s national campaign day. A range of yellow-themed interpretations were made on the day, from full yellow outfits in Primary Phase, through to subtle hair accessories and ties higher up the school.

 By participating, our pupils, students and staff showed young people they are not alone with their mental health, in a time when it has never been more important to talk and be aware of each other’s wellbeing.

 The vital funds will help Young Minds fight for young people’s mental health through a variety of methods, including a free advice service, training and producing resources to help support those who need it.
