Thank you so much for all of you that have already completed the School Environment Questionnaire for their school, it covers school policies and practices across a range of health and wellbeing areas.
The information from this is very important for school health research; what you tell us can be related to student responses on health and wellbeing issues and will provide useful information for the Welsh Network of Healthy Schools Scheme.
*In the next edition of the newsletter there will be a summary of research undertaken on the findings from the School Environment Questionnaire 2014 around the importance of senior management commitment to health.
If you haven’t managed to complete it yet, we would ask that it is returned by Friday April 15th.

The site is designed so you can search activities by key stage, curriculum subject and type of activity. There are also activities and events to encourage students to aspire to higher education. One new addition this summer is training on resourcing the new ‘A’ level Biology curriculum.
Singing For Health – Tenovus Cancer Care Schools Resource for KS3/KS4 Science
In 2010 Tenovus Cancer Care worked with Cardiff University to prove that singing can help cancer patients and their families. They now have fifteen choirs across Wales and have developed a schools’ resource for KS3/4 Science that helps schools talk to pupils about research and using the choirs as an engaging example.
To support this resource the Big Gig fundraising pack encourages students to take part in musical fundraising.
