It’s important to take care of our mental and physical health. Last week we took a pause and had a day with our students to learn ways to improve their mental and physical wellbeing.
A big thank you to Mrs. Saley, Assistant Principal, who coordinated this special Health and Wellness day for our students. Kids attended 4, 15-minute sessions on topics that relate to our mental and physical well-being. Students could select from a menu of 10 different topic sessions including yoga, mindfulness & meditation, physical fitness, healthy eating, art therapy, self-defense, animal therapy, nature therapy, benefits of mental health counseling, and a session on “giving back” where students met with community partners to learn about volunteer opportunities.
We tapped into our “in-house” experts for several of the sessions and a special thanks to these community partners who spent the day with us running sessions: Release Yoga, Red Oak, Hattie Larlham, Haven of Rest, and the Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Board.
