Students at Witton Park Academy attended an event in Blackburn to mark Suicide Prevention Day 2019 on 10th September 2019. The group of year 10 pupils had the chance to represent Witton Park Academy on world suicide prevention day. The pupils listened to speeches about how suicide effects people in different ways.

 

The pupils discovered some the means to help prevent suicide. We can cut suicide down by 40% just by saying “Hi”, smiling or asking how their day is. The Year 10’s were accompanied with Mr Henderson. Mr Henderson said : Well done to all the students on the trip, they did really well.”

 

The pupils on the trip consisted of Jay, Emma, Mohammed and Gloria.
