Wellness Week 2023

Wellness activities this week aimed to create an awareness of each other’s unique strengths and what makes us very special.

The slogan adopted for the week’s activities was “We are each unique and beautiful but together we are a masterpiece”.

Some of the activities engaged in included, mindful moments, active breaks, morning shake-ups, mindful art,  yoga, and a talent show.

These activities were arranged by our Wellness Committee. Well done guys and thank you to everybody who contributed to this lovely week.

Wellness Week Activities

Mindful Moments

Each class agreed on a time for daily meditation. We have found it really is nice to take time for ourselves sometimes.

Feel Good Dance

We danced during lunchtime to feel-good music from our two speakers. It was great fun  😊

Drop Everything and Colour (DEAC)

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

Hand Print Whole School Art “We are each unique and beautiful but together we are a masterpiece”

Each pupil decorated a hand print in their own unique way. The handprints created will be part of a whole school collaborative art piece. The objective was to attempt to get each pupil to focus on their unique qualities and what makes each one of them so special.

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 Mrs. Russell and Flavia.

Talent Show

Each class had its own Talent Show to recognize each pupil’s unique talents. We were treated to some amazing performances and skills in each show. Well done to all pupils, you truly are a very talented bunch indeed 😀👏

Mix up Monday

Mix up Monday

Mix up Monday

Today to launch our Amber Flag Initiative for the coming year and to mark World Mental Health Day we celebrated ‘Gratitude’ in our school. 

We fundraised for Pieta House as part of our annual Amber Flag initiative during the day and we were delighted with the response from the school community. We raised a total of €232 for Pieta House, many thanks for your support.

AS part of ‘Thankful Tuesday’ pupils were welcome to bring in ‘Traditional Games’ to school like board games and card games. The meaning of this activity was to focus on being thankful for what we have and what we are already which is much more important than the need to have the must-have game or piece of technology or compare ourselves to others.

We mixed up our classes for these games activities and for the artwork organized by our Amber Flag Committee so each younger pupil could connect and get support from older pupils during the activities. We are sure there will be many friendships that stem from todays activities. 

Also, during the day pupils were encouraged to move, be mindful, and get creative. We completed a whole school art display called “The Gratitude Tree” where each pupil sketched activities in their lives that they are thankful for.

As well as this, classes focused on positive things in their lives. They wrote and drew about things in their lives that made them feel happy. Both of these will form part of an art display in the coming weeks. Well done to our committee for compiling this amazing artwork.
