Stay in touch with the chaplain

Chaplain Jo Davis has an integral role in the School’s pastoral care system and aims to offer pupils the experience of genuine committed Christian worship. Christian values blend well with Bryanston values. 

During this unprecedented time, Jo invites us to remember that as well as looking out for our physical health, we must try to take care of our mental health by keeping with as many of our normal lifegiving activities as safely as we can and remembering to take time out for ourselves.

Jo hosts an ECA Craft and Chat session on a Thursday afternoon between 5–6pm, for pupils to spend time together creating and chatting – whatever they enjoy. Being creative improves wellbeing by increasing positive emotions, and reducing negative ones, such as stress and anxiety.

Jo is available to offer pastoral support for pupils, parents, and the whole family. You can contact her via the email link above.
 


The Chaplain’s five tips for mental wellbeing:

1. Remember, not everything you hear or read is true.

2. Remember to talk each day to loved ones (in person and virtually).

3. Remember to take time out to enjoy a hobby.

4. Remember to sleep well (and you may need more of it at the moment).

5. Remember that this too shall pass.
