Lower School Wellbeing Day

13 February 2020

The impact of happiness, security and welfare was emphasised to pupils throughout a whole day devoted to wellbeing on Wednesday 12 February, the last day of school before the Half Term break. The girls took part in yoga lessons, heard talks about feelings and emotions and addressed the importance of personal safety through workshops, quizzes and e-safety information sessions.

The NSPCC visited the school to make sure all the pupils have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse. With the help of their friendly mascot Buddy, the NSPCC presented assemblies to the infants and juniors and also ran workshops for Year 5 and 6 pupils.

During the yoga lessons, the girls concentrated on their breathing and practiced the different positions. The sessions were designed to help enhance strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness as well helping to increase concentration and promote calmness and relaxation.

The day was the perfect end to a busy half term!
