Well-being Week 2020
Be mindful, try something new, give to others, have fun and get active.
Wellbeing Week is a well anticipated time in the school calendar, as not only does it mean the return of the wild and exotic animals that the DWAEC showcase, but it gives students a fantastic opportunity to be mindful, try something new, give to others, to have fun and get active!
Each lunchtime different activities were held, and the workshops delivered ensured that these fundamental aims of wellbeing were being met. These have been scientifically proven to improve mental health. Across the five days, there were numerous activities to keep you busy, such as a crafts and games fair, a drumming workshop, a photo booth and a vegan bake sale to raise money for the upcoming Eco-Week. This meant that students were encouraged to try something new, and discover a new activity that helps them relax and maintain a healthy work life balance.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the prefects who helped arrange and manage the lunchtime activities, to all members of staff involved in Wellbeing Week, and to Mrs Lucas for her meticulous planning and hard work which ensured that the week was a great success.
