Wellbeing Week 2019

Posted on : March 1, 2019

The week before the mid -term break Sligo Grammar School ran a Wellbeing Week. During the previous weeks the students had been in the thick of exams – mocks for 6th and 3rd, and house exams for everyone else. It was therefore the perfect week for everyone to think about their own wellbeing and mental health, a topic much in the news at present. Lunchtime activities featured prominently with Karaoke, an open debate about social media and a Valentines Day Love Songs concert. A healthy, active lifestyle is promoted in SGS and activities such as skipathons, zumba and a whole-school flash-mob were offered to all. Monday evening saw a special concert organised by TY students. All funds raised will go to the Sligo University Hospital Paediatric Unit. During the school day students had the opportunity to try a bit of meditation and junior classes got a chance to re-connect with old-fashioned board games. One HE group had a “Tea and Talk” class where they baked cookies and then ate them together over a cuppa and a chat! On Wednesday the whole school went on a walk to Doorly Park. 1st and 2nd years were treated to a Valentines Day disco, organised for them by the Leaving Cert LCVP students. Finally, on Friday afternoon every student and teacher – and some parents and friends of SGS – got involved in a “Coffee Afternoon” in the canteen. Hot and cold drinks and a selection of cakes and buns were served and contributions were accepted for the North West Hospice in memory of our friend and colleague Patricia Burke. The Wellbeing Week was a great way to end the first half of the term and a reminder to us all to be good to ourselves. thanks to all teachers and staff who got involved and especially Ms McGuinness who was the driving force behind the week.
