We are delighted to announce that Anna Davies, our school nurse, has won a prestigious CMFT “We’re proud of you” Award. This recognises staff for their hard work and dedication to providing exceptional care and support to their patients, colleagues and the communities they serve. Anna has been recognised for the work she is currently undertaking around “ChatHealth” – a new project which she will be piloting at Manchester Health Academy around young people’s mental health. Congratulations Anna!

ChatHealth is a new way for young people to get advice and support about health related issues direct from the School Nurse service and will be launching on 25th April 2016.
Anna will be presenting about the new text messaging service in assemblies and each student will be given a business card with details of the number to text. She says “ChatHealth is a fantastic way for young people to contact their school nurse and receive help and support to address their health needs. ChatHealth has been very successful in other areas of the country and I am very excited about launching it in Manchester. It will enable us to communicate in a young people friendly manner and make a real difference to young people’s access to healthcare”.

Two Manchester Health Academy students have been rewarded by the Manchester United Foundation for their hard work and good attitude in school.
Laura Heim and Abbas Sardar went see Manchester United play Tottenham at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Both students feel very motivated by their reward. Laura said “I felt really excited because I’ve never won something extreme like this, I am only going to work harder in and out of school because of this.”, while Abbas said “I feel really happy to have won the tickets, because I never get picked for anything! It will encourage me to work a lot harder.”
Karen Schofield, EAL Coordinator and Literacy Support at the Academy, nominated Laura and Abbas as she felt that their work in their EAL sessions and their attitude to school in general should be recognised.
Manchester United Foundation works in partnership with Manchester Health Academy, providing opportunities for students to access sports training, leadership courses and motivational rewards. Hub Development Officer Lee Caldwell is pictured with Laura and Abbas receiving their tickets.
Congratulations to students in Years 7 and 8, who have won several prizes in the Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust ‘No Smoking Campaign’ competition.

Competing against other Manchester schools, all the students worked really hard on their projects in their own time, during half term and did some work in lessons too.
All the students did fantastically well, between them achieving the three overall winner places and no less than five runner up places!

The overall winners were presented with a digital camera each, while the runners up received vouchers during assembly yesterday. Well done to all who entered the competition!
