DJS is 'outstandingly happy!!'
DJS celebrated happiness and shared ways to banish Blue Monday with parents and then the wider community on Monday 21st January
Last year, DJS joined forces with several other local schools to find ways of improving mental health and increasing happiness within the school with the aim of sending positive 'ripples' out into the community. This culminated in a morning assembly and activities with parents in school where the school's Year 6 Happiness Ambassadors shared the key principles of the 'Art of Brilliance' programme. Choosing to help banish the blues on what is said to be the most depressing day of the year, the Ambassadors then walked into the village with Mrs Viner to spread some happiness, handing out spring flowers to local residents passing by. The atmosphere was lifted further by some fantastic live music from pupils from The Cowplain School. See more details in the Portsmouth News article HERE.
