Wellness Week - Year 12 Health
Students selected a goal that they felt would impact the school community's Hauora (well-being). Following this they developed an action plan with steps on how they would undergo this task. The whole process took a lot of cooperation and planning, and provided challenges that students had to overcome in order to have success and achieve their intended outcome. After implementing their health promotion campaign students evaluated their action plans to see how effective they were at enhancing the well-being of the school community, and what they would change moving forward.
We had a huge variety of activities this year, over the course of the week. These activities included friendship bracelet making, drawing competition, scavenger hunt, sensory box (for counsellors office), affirmation wall, and a non- uniform day for Pink Shirt Day to raise awareness for diversity, inclusiveness and anti-bullying.
Alongside these activities, 9W students created a Kindness Rock Garden. They all worked hard over a few weeks to paint and write lovely positive words and affirmations on them. LPHS students were then able to take one away for themselves or give to a friend.
I am really proud of their efforts, and know that they benefited greatly from this opportunity. This year was particularly challenging as due to covid protocols a number of students worked from home and this required an added component of planning for students.
