The students had already been hearing from celebrity chef and HFEH Mind ambassador Temi Tyrese about his career and work he does which includes cooking for famous celebrities when he then announced Will was to join in.
The special event was hosted by Mind’s Andy Apraku and Meg Zeenat Wamithi and pupils heard from both Will and Temi about the importance of keeping mentally well and how to do this.
Chiswick School students had chosen Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow Mind as their charity of choice and the school helps students to learn about physical and mental health through visiting speakers and collaborations with other organisations.
Headteacher Laura Ellener said: “I think the teachers were as excited as the students, Will and Temi are amazing ambassadors for Mind which is a brilliant organisation doing some fantastic work in the local community.”
Nana Owusu, clinical lead and director of youth services at Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow Mind said: “We are grateful to partner with and support Chiswick School on this vital issue and their engagement in mental health conversations brought us great joy. We commend the school’s dedication to educating young minds about physical and mental health, and we are proud to be their charity of choice for the next academic year.”
