At the end of each term HAB girls have the opportunity to write a postcard to praise someone in our school community. They do so anonymously and 'post' them to be delivered. The idea came from one of our brilliant Year 9 girls.

Dilara, Year 10, on our Latest Theme Day

Yakar Dilara 149Dilara, Year 10 (right), reports on what she learned and enjoyed during our latest Theme Day.

Theme Day, for me, was very eye-opening. For example, during my second lesson I learnt that from March 2016 to March 2017, knife crime had risen rapidly; over 12,000 people were injured over the one year period.

In my second lesson I have also learnt that 80% of people who carry knives get their own knife used against them. Unless you are a butcher, fishmonger, carpet fitter, chef or a Sikh carrying a Kirpan and you are carrying a knife, you will be arrested.

IMG 0513Theme DayCoping with stress

My third lesson was about stress and how to cope with it. Before that lesson I never knew that stress could be caused by hunger or lack of sleep. To deal with stress and/or anxiety, you could try doing exercises, such as walking or swimming, or deal with what’s making you stressed, e.g. if school work is making you feel anxious, try doing 10-15 minutes then have 20 minute breaks.

My fourth lesson was about relationships and respect. In that lesson, there was a discussion on what makes a healthy relationship good and what makes an unhealthy relationship bad. Good communication skills, having different yet some similar interests, having different friends and basic respect are some of the components of a healthy relationship. However, being overly jealous, having the same exact interests, having no other friends and having no basic respect are some of the components of an unhealthy relationship.

Exercises

My last lesson was PE (pictured). In that lesson, my whole year group and I did one minute exercises, such as a plank, skipping and mountain climbers, then had a 30 second rest to switch exercises.

I really enjoyed Theme Day because I learnt something which made me more aware of the society I live in today.
