It’s now Wellbeing Week here in the school. You can see the full schedule just below as well as an info document explaining what it’s all about. At break and lunchtime each day this week there is mindfulness colouring happening so come in and get colourful! We also have a Wellbeing week display with books and magazines with information relating to all aspects of wellbeing, such as managing stress, mental health, sexuality, diet, fitness etc.
