Kindness Matters

Between 18th – 24th May, this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week championed the “Kindness Matters” value. The Brooklands College Student Enrichment team constantly look to positively develop young minds and encourage kindness between the students. For Mental Health Awareness week, our social media platforms were taken over by this campaign to promote positive thinking and support to our students.

Imagine a world where we can succeed by being nice, where we all look out for each other, where we all pay it forward and where kindness is the norm.

Mind & Wellbeing

Thursday 21st May, World Meditation Day fell very nicely on Mental Health Awareness Week. Life can often feel overwhelming – especially in the current climate. Meditation is a way of stopping still for a moment and taking time to reflect.
