Health and well-being week

Written by 

Last week was Health & Well being week in our school. Have a read below of what Gemma had to say about this very successful initiative for pupils,  teachers, other staff  and parents. All were involved in this active and mindful week. 

"It was a chance for us to be mindful of our surroundings, concentrate on our mental & physical wellbeing, connect with our friends, and take a chance to be thankful of what we have rather than looking at what we don’t have.

 Activities throughout the week included: Go noodle in the class, chair yoga, 6th class yoga, class to 1km walks, healthy smoothies made by our parents, sensory walks, mindful eating, gratitude lists, and daily brain breaks with relaxing music and a thought of the day to focus on.

 The parents also took part and relaxed with yoga and kept fit with a 5km walk.  Thank you to all the mums who spent the morning chopping, blending and serving our healthy smoothies. Also a big thank you to Carambola for the donation of fruit and vegetables. Part of staying well is staying connected with friends. We had a ‘getting to know you’ coffee morning on Friday. It was great to meet new friends and to re connect with familiar ones too.

The week is over, but the message stays the same. Take time to take care of your health and yourself. Look after your body by eating the right foods and by exercising, looking after your mind by relaxing and staying in contact with friends, and if you ever have a worry share it with someone and always ask for help!

 

A big thank you to everybody involved!
