Last Thursday, over 100 Students from Thomas Adams School, Sir John Talbot’s School, Oswestry School, The Grove School, Morton Hall and The Marches School attended a Psychology Conference at The Marches School. Representatives from Aberystwyth University, Wrexham Glyndwr University, University of Chester, University of Chester in Shrewsbury and Liverpool Hope University were also in attendance to deliver a wide range of psychology based workshops and presentations.
The sessions were focused on the theme of ‘Well-being’ and the SJT students learned how important this concept is for learning and thriving. The thought provoking sessions allowed students to not only further their psychology subject knowledge, but to find out more about the many excellent universities locally. Workshops included; “Exploring resilience: what does it really mean?”, ‘A balanced approach to well-being’, “Superstitions and stress as a coping mechanism”, ‘Mindfulness and Wellbeing’, ‘It gets better: Life beyond A-levels’ and ‘How humour can enhance well-being’. Each student attended four workshops and also had chance to network with workshop leaders.
A big thank you to The Marches School for hosting the event, our students had an enjoyable visit and look forward to putting their newfound knowledge into practice.
