Be active, be connect, keep learning
WELL-BEING week program at OTR
The well-being of the child is always at the heart of our school’s concerns, which is why the infirmary is a place of reception, listening, care and prevention, with the aim of accompanying them day after day.
Sophrology, breathing and relaxation workshops are set up during the school year in each class to give students the opportunity to use well-being program
MONDAY – CONNECT
Whether it’s a new interest or a lifelong hobby, a great way to meet new people is to join a club. Hold an activity fair, showcasing the clubs and teams at the school. Encourage students to attend and discover new things to do at OTR school.
TUESDAY – GET ACTIVE
What’s more, there are so many activities out there to choose from, there is bound to be one that you enjoy! Exercise can be a way to deal with negative thoughts and feelings. The feeling of setting a goal and achieving it – even if it’s just a jog around the block – can really improve your self-esteem, too.
WEDNESDAY – BE MINDFUL
Give yoga a go! Holding lunch time or after school yoga session is a great way to start being more aware of your body, as well as your mind. Mindfulness might be new to lots of students. Why not introduce it with a big group meditation? Find a guided mindfulness exercise, get everyone sitting comfortably and follow along together with your students.
THURSDAY – KEEP LEARNING
Quiz : Host a big quiz in your main hall. Rally your teams together and test your knowledge!
Lunch ‘n’ Learn : Organise a group and learn something new! Whether it’s creative (sewing, knitting, drawing), IT skills, a discussion about the news, get those brain juices flowing!
FRIDAY – GIVE TO OTHERS
Non-uniform day – Organise a non-uniform day, and give a donation to the Mental Health Foundation! All the money raised will go towards important research and fighting the stigma surrounding mental health.
