What does 'they need a lot of cheering up' mean here?
'I get back home on the weekend of the 7th and will be heading into school the following week to talk to the sixth formers. So i can always see you then, I know the staff would like to see you. They need a lot of cheering up.'

It means they’re feeling sad and they could use some help to feel happy. When you get someone to smile, you are cheering them up.
