Hats on for Mental Health: A summary by Kayleigh
12th October 2021
Today was a great day. I saw many people wearing hats including teachers. The hats were all amazing and all different styles too.
I think the day overall was great as it was lovely to see how many people were supporting the cause and supporting the charity mind.
Even if they didn’t wear a hat, many still supported the cause and the charity by paying a quid.
Let’s say today was a great success.
Thank you to everybody who donated. As a school, we raised £230.00!
Hats on for Mental Health
30th September 2021
Exhall Grange are helping to promote World Mental Health Day by joining in the ‘Hats on 4 Mental Health’ campaign. The theme this year is “Mental Health in an Unequal World”.
Sunday 10th October is World Mental Health Day and to celebrate, Coventry and Warwickshire Mind have suggested a non-uniform day where students are encouraged to wear a hat at school and donate £1 to their registered Charity. The #hatsonformentalhealth campaign will be launched week commencing 4th October by our School Council. Exhall Grange Community are encouraged to participate in a non-uniform day on Friday 8th October. This fundraising will help continue the services Coventry and Warwickshire Mind deliver across the County.
We will set up a payment within SchoolMoney so that parents can donate online, or your child can bring cash in on the day.
The usual non-uniform day rules will apply – no pyjamas, onesies or football shirts and this time no rude or offensive hats!

The Guardian Foundation Workshop – Wednesday 8th September
8th September 2021
Year 10 GCSE Media Studies pupils participated in a Guardian Newspaper on-line interactive workshop called ‘Behind the Headlines: Fake or Real News’ and were encouraged to discuss how and where they find out about news stories.
Pupils analysed and researched the different ways sources can be misleading. Overall, the session developed pupils’ research and questioning skills to increase their confidence in checking the trustworthiness of newspaper stories.
What a great start to the Year! Well done Year 10 Media Studies pupils for your hard work and endeavour.
