Verulam School’s annual service of thanksgiving and dedication in the St Albans Cathedral 22 October 2021
Last October, Verulam School chose to support Youth Talk at its annual service of thanksgiving and dedication. The service gives students, staff, and guests an opportunity to reflect and be thankful for Verulam.
In the spirit of the service’s theme – ‘It’s Good to Talk’ – Head boy, Owen, and Head Girl, Myli, shared an inspiring charity appeal. They discussed some of the key factors that can affect your mental health during school and highlighted the importance of asking your friends: “Are you okay?” or “Are you having a bad day?”. Myli and Owen urged listeners:
Students sold Youth Talk pin badges in aid of Youth Talk and there was a collection during the service. The students at Verulam School raised a massive £2,000! Pictured left are Myli, Huw, Miss Richardson, Rachel Simkin and Owen during the cheque presentation. We cannot thank them enough for raising both awareness and vital funds for our service.
We are always looking for schools and youth groups who want to fundraise in support of Youth Talk.
Can you help us now? Why not fundraise for us: organise an event with your school, friends, or family to raise awareness and vital funds. Together we can ensure that the young people of St Albans feel heard. #WeAreListening
