Students of ISM Anonymous group started this petition to ISM Mr. Birchenall and Mr. Dickinson

Dear Juniors of ISM,

What we do next can bring a huge change to our school.

We need to show Mr.Birchenall and Mr.Dickinson how much we need to focus on our mental health and wellbeing

IB has been stressful and difficult for all of us, causing depression, anxiety, self-harm, loss of appetite and many other things, especially during the pandemic with online school. 

Many teachers don't seem to follow the assessment calendar and give us so much work that we spend almost 15 hours on our computers every day. They tell us to not push ourselves, take breaks and focus on our hobbies, yet they give us no time to focus on ourselves. 

A teacher even once told a student to suck it up when they had a mental breakdown in class. 

Yes, they've started the stress workshops, but they seem to not take it seriously and either forget about it or push the blame on us. 

Even the littlest changes can help, such as allowing more reassessments (even if you get a five). With online school, it's hard to keep up in class and many are in such bad mental states because of the grades. I mean we don't even have time to focus on our EE and EOY because the teachers don't give us any and expect us to just figure it out ourselves, without us even having any time.

If we don't do anything about it now, we'll only be victims to this much longer. If we work together to bring a change, we can help ourselves and future junior students. You can sign this petition anonymously even if you're worried. Hopefully, we'll be able to achieve something, together
