This year’s Movember campaign is well underway, and the
school’s Mo Bros are busy cultivating their moustaches.
This year, over 50 boys will be involved in the organisation
of numerous events, including Pokemon ‘Mo’ (gotta catch em all!), a themed
mufti day, as well as social media activity, the creation of the greatly
anticipated annual video and paper publicity; all designed to increase
awareness of, and raise money for, Men’s Health issues.
They are also highly involved in educative work, which
includes senior boys planning and leading sessions on health issues (mental and
physical) with the younger pupils; an endeavour of which we are incredibly
proud. At a time when teenage mental health issues have reached record levels
in the UK, this coming month provides an uplifting example of where teenage
boys are taking a serious responsibility for looking after one another.
Over the years the school has habitually been the largest
Movember fundraiser in the UK in the education sector; a position the school’s
Mo Bros will be aiming for again as they kick off this year’s campaign.
