Wellbeing Week 2nd to 5th of December
Wellbeing Week at SFX Senior School was a great success. Out Action Team for Partnership (ATP) devised a themed week of activities for pupils and parents! Each day of the week had a different theme and brought a fun and reflective activity from “Marsh-mellow Monday” to “Feelgood Friday”. Pupils experienced yoga lessons, played board games, wrote gratitude letters to a family member and engaged in screen-free evenings at home. The week concluded with a flash-mob dance by the teachers much to the delight of the pupils!
As mentioned in my last blog, pupils and teachers of our school were invited by the Department and Skills to participate in a video on Wellbeing in Schools. The video is now available to view here.
We received a lovely letter of acknowledgment from the DES who noted “On behalf of the Department of Education and Skills I would like to thank you for assisting us in our work on the promotion of wellbeing. We are very lucky to have schools like St. Francis Xavier Senior National School leading the way in the promotion of wellbeing.”
