Pupils from St Lawrence Academy write song to raise mental health awareness

Pupils at St Lawrence Academy have written the lyrics to their inspiring song ‘Create the Change’, which has helped to raise awareness of the importance of mental health.

Helen Parker (Extended Services and Anti-Bullying Co-ordinator at the Academy) explained the project:

“We decided to run a project which would create a Mental Health Song as this would develop; creative writing, literacy, reflection upon positive mental health, music, team ethos and peer support…we found this an innovative way to promote literacy across the curriculum.

“Mental Health is a priority which the students have encouraged thousands to reflect on and consider positive steps towards emotional wellbeing”
