Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
On the evening of Thursday 25th February, St George's were pleased to host Dr Aric Sigman, a chartered psychologist, author and a Fellow of many scientific groups.
His presentation on Preventing Mental Health Problems in Children was well attended and thought provoking. Takeaways from the evening included the importance for our children in having positive routines, especially around sleep and physical activity, and the benefits this can bring to them. Also, how engaging with nature can boost our mental wellbeing, and the important role we all play as parents in being "influencers" in our children's lives.
We all enjoyed his informative talk and look forward to welcoming him back to St George's in the near future.
