Whole School Wellbeing Day 1

Building on the success of last years whole School Wellbing Day, this year we are running health and wellbeing sessions over two half days. 

Over the course of the program students will participate in four separate sessions aiming to improve their understanding and engagement with their physical, emotional and mental Health.

The first day got underway with a pancake  breakfast and “global cafe” style focus group discussion, with individual tables and heath related topics run by student leaders, recording student feedback around current practice and potential improvements. Thanks to Kathryn from Merri Community Health who helped these students prepare with a training session and lots of support and encouragement. We look forward to continuing this partnership with Merri Health over the next few years.  

These sessions include Cyber Safety, Brain Function, Healthy eating and cooking and Yoga, followed by a whole school lunch cooked by students and staff during the day.  

Well done to all the students and staff for there efforts, enthusiasm and participation. With special thanks to Jason for his wonderful photography.

Youth Climate Summit

This week a number of junior student volunteered to attend a Climate Change Summit at CERES run by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. Students spent the day investigating and challenging popular conceptions around climate change. 

Thanks to these students for getting involved and we look forward to them feeding back to the rest of the school.

Visit to The Arts Centre

With thanks to the First Call Fund at The Arts Centre we got to watch The Yard. A brilliant dance show that was designed with the secondary school students that performed. It was loosely based on Lord of the Flies with major themes of survival in the school yard, there were no spoken words, everything was communicated via dance.  Before the show we participated in QUADwrangle, a soundscape designed by our very own Matt Ridgway!!

As it was such a beautiful day we left school a little earlier than necessary and visited Mazza who was selling pies at Federation Square for the Cancer Council and had some time in the sun on the grass at The Arts Centre.
