Wellbeing Wednesdays

Junior School has requested to begin practising Wellbeing Wednesdays again this year.  This will involve your students taking some time out of their day to focus on their wellbeing.  This may be a quick activity to help keep them be more mindful, present, centred and grounded or may involve them doing an act of kindness for another person.

Schools have a critical role in supporting students to make healthy lifestyle choices and to understand consequences on lifelong health and wellbeing. The link between health and wellbeing and positive academic performance is well researched:

  • Healthy students are more alert, engaged and better able to concentrate and learn
  • Physical activity is associated with improved learning and concentration, better mood and behaviour.
  • Developing strong, supportive relationships in schools provides a safer and more inclusive environment for students to engage in their studies and learn.
