The Duchess of Cambridge lead an online assembly on behalf of the Oak National Academy during which she spoke about the importance of mental wellbeing among children. The theme of the Duchess’ assembly was ‘spread a little kindness’ and was based on a lesson plan which is available on the Mentally Healthy Schools platform. This platform was developed in collaboration with children’s mental health charity Place2Be and encourages children to explore ways in which they can show kindness and recognise the benefits of kindness to others.
The Mentally Healthy Schools platform can be accessed here:
A recording of the assembly can be accessed, as well as others, on the Oak National Academy website.
