Wellbeing Wednesday

One of our targets for School Self Evaluation is to promote wellbeing throughout our school.

Here at Cranny NS, the first Wednesday of each month has been designated ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’, whereby the whole school community engages in activities to lift our mood, enjoy the present and take a break from our regular classroom routines.

Today was our first ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’.  Our newly formed Student Council had their first meeting.  Ms. Coyne treated us to a relaxing yoga session.  We finished the day with some Golden Time where the children in the Senior Classes teamed up with the Junior Classes for some fun activities.

This evening, we take a break from homework and instead focus on time in nature and quality time with our friends and our families.
