Empowering Wellness: A Recap of Health Week

Education around health is important, as it empowers us with the knowledge and skills needed to make informed decisions, leading to better overall wellbeing and the prevention of potential health risks.

This week we celebrated Health Week, which aims to educate students and staff, about various aspects of physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

The week started off with health expo stalls created by our Year 10 students as part of their Health Education learning experience. Students presented on a topic of their choice and shared their message of health with the school community. Those who visited the stalls learned a lot about topics including:

  • Body Image
  • Nutrition
  • Healthy hydration practices
  • Mindfulness and wellbeing
  • Hair care
  • Sun safety
  • Iron deficiency
  • Various cancers
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

Our incredible Science Technicians also presented on the topic of edible insects, which is always a hit with the students, getting to eat crickets, meal worms and ant tea!

Not only did students take a lot away from this week, but also our staff members, who received free massages as a way to unwind and relax and free skin checks with Mole Patrol.

2023 Wellbeing Captain Jessie Speers and the Mental Health Ambassadors also took this Health Week as an opportunity to organise some initiatives, one being a men’s mental health morning tea.

“This event is not only about conversations; it’s about action. We’re dedicated to raising awareness about simple self-care practices that empower men to prioritise their mental wellbeing.”, says Jessie.

The Mental Health Ambassadors also organised a mega mindful colouring-in session. Students were invited down to the terrace to have a cup of tea, chat, and colour in. The collective artwork will be hung on the wellness board for the school community to enjoy.

“The Mental Health Ambassadors and I have had such a fun time organising activities for Health Week because we find wellbeing and mental health such an important part of overall health.”, adds Jessie.

We trust that students and staff enjoyed Health Week! A big thank you to the Physical Education Department, Grounds & Maintenance team, and the Mental Health Ambassadors for all their hard work in preparing and running Health Week.

Embracing Tradition: Praying the Rosary

One of the cherished traditions that we hold dear is our weekly gathering in the chapel to recite the Rosary. The Rosary isn’t just a routine prayer; it’s a sacred tradition that brings us together in faith and love.
