Marist goes bananas for wellbeing

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This week at St. Mary’s College, Mental Health Wek was celebrated through a myriad of activities and workshops.
The week began with 5000 Steps to Wellbeing. The students and teachers took part in the walk and this was followed by the students receiving a wellbeing pack. The theme of the walk, Marist Goes Bananas for Wellbeing was inspired by the generous donation of bananas from Fyffes.
The fifth-year students participated in the Aware – Beat the Blues workshop. Here the students were exposed to the various coping strategies to help develop resilience. Meanwhile the first-year students enjoyed mindfulness colouring in a tranquil setting.
The sixth-year students participated in a stress management workshop hosted by Nicola Hanlon of the Rejuvenate Suite. The students learned about the importance of nutrition, sleep strategies and breathing and mindfulness exercises that can be used during the busy year ahead.
Poster competitions encapsulating one positive thought ran throughout the school community and the artist talents of our students are currently been displayed on our Wellness Wall.
The week was a huge success and it reinforced the holistic and community spirit in St. Mary’s College while embedding wellbeing across of year groups.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid grid_id=”vc_gid:1539603933216-0130bcca-203c-5″ include=”10273,10257,10264″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
