Wellness Week 2023

Wellness Week commenced in St. Canice’s BNS on 23rd October where all classes in the school attended an assembly with Mr. Walsh to outline the aims for the week.  Activities that commenced yesterday included: Mindful Art and a Mindful Story in each class.  The slogan for the week is “Be Happy, Be Kind, Look After Your Mind!”


The aim of this week will be to promote positive mental health and to bring attention to how we can help our children make good choices and build healthy, happy lives.


Each school day during the week will have a theme that highlights an aspect of healthy living and well-being.  We would encourage parents and guardians to have conversations with their children about the different themes and about wellness in general.  The themes for the week are as follows:


Monday, 23rd October –       Mindful Monday

Tuesday, 24th October –       Thankful Tuesday

Wednesday, 25th October – Wellbeing Wednesday

Thursday, 26th October –     Thoughtful Thursday

Friday, 27th October –          Friendship Friday


As part of Wellness Week, children will have no homework for the week.  Children are encouraged to engage in ‘Acts of Kindness’ each evening in lieu of homework.   


Our Home School Teacher, Anthony, will be in touch with parents in relation to some wellness activities for parents that will be hosted in the school during this important week.
