KGV College Southport Hosts Positive Choices Day

On Wednesday, students at King George V College attended the College’s first Positive Choices Day, an event which offered advice and guidance about making positive choices.

Some of the topics covered included safe sex, staying safe online, and finding coping strategies to protect your mental and physical health.

Matt Fitzpatrick, Course Leader for Health and Social Care at the College, said, “Our students have enthusiastically participated in this morning’s events; we are particularly grateful for the number of external agencies that joined with the College in promoting a balanced and healthy approach to the stresses of modern life.”

The morning featured talks from Southport Hospital and Merseyside Police, whilst other local organisations such as Sefton Independent Domestic Violence Advocates, Healthwatch Sefton, and the RAF hosted information stands.

King George V College staff also got involved in the event, delivering sessions in Yoga and Mindfulness in addition to offering students revision advice and tips in preparation for the upcoming exam season.

Rachael Brownhill, Careers Co-ordinator who helped organise the event, added: “It was great to see the students getting so involved in the various activities around college and engaging with all the different topics.

As a college we are passionate and committed to educating the whole person, valuing each and every one of our learners and building their futures.”
