The idea behind the event is that people get together for a chat, over a cup of tea and cake. The students created posters, tickets and a quiz for the event. As well as cakes cooked by over 25 Sixth Formers, staff also joined in by bringing in home baked contributions.
This was the first time that the event had been held at QEH, and it was a huge success with lots of positive feedback. Lots of pupils came to the School Room, where the delicious aroma of chocolate and vanilla created just the right atmosphere for a friendly chat. There have already been requests for another Mental Health Day event next year.
Thank you to Jack Collard, Chris Hyland, Hari Newnham and Harry King, who were the four main organisers of Tea and Talk. Thanks also go to James Palmer, Ben Lee, Romi Aggarwal, Nat Shin, Louis Harris, Ed Piska, Rory Neville and Alex James who all volunteered to help out at the event.
The event raised £239.43 - and a great many smiles!
