REMINDER: REINDEER ROUNDUP 2023 - Friday 15th December 8.50-9.20am
Since 2016, Bodmin College has held the, now famous, Santa Fun Run. This year we are planning the same event but under a new exciting name: The Reindeer Roundup! We will be advertising the event in assemblies over the coming weeks. The event will take place on Friday 15th December at tutor time. Cornwall Hospice Care are providing reindeer antlers and a festive medal for all pupils who take part, in return they are asking for a minimum sponsorship of £5 to cover their costs. Over the years, Bodmin College students have raised over £10,000 for this charity with the highest amount raised last year: £3,250 . There are two ways you can raise money and help us to fund the care this Christmas:

NEW: Young Minds Parent Helpline
As a parent, anger and aggressive behaviour can be particularly difficult to deal with. If you're going through this, remember that it is important to look after yourself too.
If you have ever flown on a plane you may remember the flight attendant saying that in times of difficulty you need to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others - and the same applies here.
Take time out when you need to. If you feel your own anger levels rising, tell your child you're taking a time out.
And remember, you don't have to manage this on your own.
Our Parents Helpline team can give you emotional support, advice and help you to come up with a strategies to help your child. You can call our Parents Helpline on 0808 802 5544, Monday - Friday 9:30am - 4:00pm
