Wellness Week 2023

As parents and caregivers, ensuring the happiness, health, and resilience of our young people is one of our most important tasks. We understand the unique obstacles they face, from anxiety and depression to cyberbullying and self-harm. That’s why we have invested in a fantastic wellbeing resource called SchoolTV.

As parents, you have access to this invaluable resource, offering credible information and practical strategies. SchoolTV features expert interviews, fact sheets, parent quizzes, recommended apps, books, and more. It’s a comprehensive tool designed to support you in navigating the wellbeing of your child.

As part of Wellness Week this year, we have selected a blog post or resource to tie in with each day’s wellbeing theme so that you can continue learning at home with your family.

Monday

For the first day of Wellness Week, we focused on the theme ‘Be Aware,’ encouraging students to cultivate mindfulness and pay attention to their emotions, stress levels and reactions. Activities promoted gratitude, positive self-talk, relaxation and compassion.

Thursday

For the fourth day of Wellness Week, our focus was the theme ‘Help Others.’ Our students were encouraged to embrace the power of giving: offering their time, assistance, attention, and love. We encouraged them to volunteer selflessly, extend a helping hand to those in need, and expect nothing in return.
