During the 17th to 19th October 2017, the whole school had a focus on well-being. As a school we looked at the areas of physical health and mental well-being.

A wide range of activities were planned for the children to teach them about these areas. We had many physical actives including Glowfit, Military Bootcamp, climbing, and Little Dribblers from SAFC. Health and well-being sessions were provided by the LAF Project and the school nurse. SAFC provided an introduction to mental health and well-being to our older children.

Overall the children had a fun filled week from which they have gained a better understanding of how important their well-being is and how they can be responsible for ensuring their own levels of well-being.
