Satveer Nijjar Virtually Visits Dollar

On 12 May, Satveer Nijjar virtually spoke to Form V pupils and parents about mental health and self-harm awareness.

Written by Miss Langley, English Teacher and Head of PSE at Dollar Academy.

On Tuesday 12 May, we were delighted to welcome Satveer Nijjar to Dollar Academy (albeit via a Zoom lens) where she delivered an engaging session to Form V on looking after their mental health.

She returned later in the evening and ran a two-hour parental session on self-harm awareness. Drawing from her own experiences, Satveer tackled this difficult subject with professionalism, honesty and a lightness of touch which encouraged parents to think critically about the assumptions they make connected to those who self-harm. This mixture of analysis and personal input made for an extremely insightful and informative evening and we look forward to welcoming her back to Dollar ‘in real life’ next year.

Thank you to Satveer Nijjar for leading these two sessions, which received very positive feedback from Dollar parents.
