Activities each lunchtime have focused on the Five Ways to Wellbeing:

  • Being active
  • Connecting
  • Keep learning
  • Taking notice
  • Giving back

With activities as diverse as yoga, Zumba, a shared morning tea and trivia, the girls have been stretched physically, mentally and emotionally.


There were many different activities that were aimed to make us aware of having a healthy mind and body. I really enjoyed Zumba because it was so much fun to get up and move around and have some fun dancing and being active with our friends. It was definitely the highlight of my week. (Bethany, Year 9)


With a focus on ‘Learning’ as an important aspect of wellbeing, a trivia session was held in the school library along with other educational games on Wednesday. The atmosphere was lively, with everyone enthusiastic to join in. This activity encouraged us to realise how learning isn’t limited to the classroom and is able to support a nourished lifestyle.

Today I did yoga for Wellbeing Week. It was a really great experience. It was good because it was so relaxing and a good way to calm yourself down after a long day. I recommend yoga for anyone and any age. (Poppy, Year 7)
