School Goes Orange Day

SCHOOL GOES ORANGE DAY

Note to all 1st, 2nd and 5th year parents/guardians: For our ‘schools go orange’ event tomorrow all students have been asked to wear in their PE gear, or replace parts of it with orange attire. We will also be joined with Joe Dixon, an ambassador for Cycle against Suicide (CAS); the chosen organisation for this fundraiser. He will speak to the pupils in the morning, discussing his story about dealing with depression, among other life events that might be hard to hear. Having said this, he has delivered a similar talk to several schools in the past, and always ends on a positive note; honing in on various coping mechanisms. We would like to inform you in advance. Please know that the staff in BCC have an open door policy regarding any support needed, and also please find a list of organisations that can give additional support/help on the following website, if you or anyone has been affected by this talk. http://www.cycleagainstsuicide.com/ask-for-help/
