The prep school hosted the awareness day on Friday, January 17 to help them "think and learn about different ways to keep themselves healthy both physically and mentally".

Activities were chosen by staff allowed all children to participate at the level appropriate to their age.

They took part in laughing sessions, colouring, welly walks, meditating or had the opportunity to just sit down, have a chat and a cup of squash.

A school spokesman said: "The health and wellbeing of the children at Wisbech Grammar School is of paramount importance.

"Throughout the year, we strive to provide the children with a happy place to learn, but also look to ways that we can develop the children into life-long happy and healthy men and women.

"A big thank you must go to BookLife in King's Lynn who donated a range of books for children to enjoy reading."
