Friday 12 July
This day was designed especially for 200 Year 9 students from Corsham Secondary School. The students were taken off curriculum for the whole day and took part in a range of talks, workshops and experiences focusing on health and wellbeing.
The SPARK team worked with local services and organisations to provide a range of activities that would support all of the student's needs, from mental and physical to
emotional. Staff from Corsham School also provided activities to highlight the
subjects and facilities at school that can support the students' wellbeing.
88% of students surveyed after the event said they would recommend SPARK.
