Emotional Health

This theme promotes positive emotional health and wellbeing to help pupils understand and express their feelings and build their confidence and emotional resilience, and therefore their capacity to learn!

 
Singing
Some of the health and wellbeing benefits of singing....
  • Deep breathing ensures well-oxygenated blood, giving a feeling of wellbeing and contributing to general good health,
  • Controlled breathing counteracts anxiety and stress,
  • Good posture adds to self-confidence,
  • Becoming 'lost in the character and emotion' of the song brings emotional cleansing,
  • Learning new songs and performing brings about a sense of achievement,
  • Singing together leads to friendship and fellowship.

St. Hilary School is taking part in 'Sing Up' - the Music Manifesto's national singing programme ... I'm sure you'll hear more about this in the future!
