Wellbeing Week

Jenefer Wiltschut (Head of Wellbeing)

Last week, our school came alive with the vibrant energy of Wellbeing Week, a celebration dedicated to promoting health and happiness among students and staff. The week was packed with activities designed to nurture our mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing, emphasising the importance of maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Wellbeing is crucial for students as it significantly impacts their mental health, academic performance, physical health, social skills, emotional development, and capacity to flourish.
Wellbeing activities enhance social interactions, foster a sense of community, and help
students develop the skills necessary to tackle the ups and downs of adolescent life.
Establishing these habits early sets the foundation for lifelong health and success, creating a positive and enriching environment where students can thrive.

Throughout the week, we emphasised the Five Ways to Wellbeing: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, and Give. With the help of our Year 12 Wellbeing Captain, Ava, each day activities were designed around these principles, encouraging our students to learn more about how they can be proactive in improving their wellbeing. Connecting with peers during group activities, staying active through sports and dance, taking notice of the present
moment in mindfulness sessions and a Kolbe scavenger hunt, learning new skills at science demonstrations, and giving back through acts of kindness all contributed to a holistic
approach to wellbeing.

Wellbeing Week was a resounding success, leaving our community inspired to prioritise their health and happiness. By integrating these practices into our daily lives, we can continue to foster a supportive and thriving school community.
