Wellness Week Activities

Mindful Moments

Each class agreed on a time for daily meditation for the month of May. Our Amber Flag representatives remind teachers each day as school life can be busy sometimes. They’ve earned the title of “Mindful Moment Monitors” in each class. It really is nice to take time to ourselves sometimes.

Feel Good Dance

Each day, we danced during lunchtime using our two speakers. It was great fun  😊

Drop Everything and Colour (DEAC)

On Monday afternoon, we engaged in some mindful colouring in each class.

Gratitude Flower Whole School Art

Each pupil decorated a petal with things they are thankful for in their lives. Their petals formed a beautiful whole school collaborative art piece in our school. The objective was to attempt to get each pupil to focus on the good things in their lives. 

Morning Shake-Up

The sixth class pupils and our Amber Flag reps directed exercise sessions with school pupils on two mornings during Wellness week.

Yoga and Zumba

All classes engaged with Yoga and Zumba in our school hall during Wellness Week. Thank you Ms. Russell and Flavia.

Hot Chocolate Check In

All pupils were treated to hot chocolate and encouraged to chat with classmates. They were encouraged to talk about positive things in their lives and to try to find out something new about their classmates.

Orienteering

All classes were challenged to find markers around the school grounds. They attempted to crack the code on each marker to reveal a hidden message.
