Greater Manchester Mentally Healthy Rapid Pilot

As part of our involvement in the GM Mentally Healthy Rapid Pilot, athlete Anna Fitzpatrick came to AGGS and she was working with a group of students from Year 10 on a project called Moving Minds. Moving Minds aims to help students build confidence, manage physical and emotional wellbeing and achieve their potential in school and in life through physical activity and life skills. The programme uses physical activity to reduce the stress and anxiety of pupils to support improvements in academic attainment, and to increase understanding of stress and anxiety disorders affecting young people and the role of being active as a mechanism for reducing their prevalence.

The day was a great success and students got a lot out of the experience.
