Wellbeing Within Week 2020

Arts, Design, General, News, Senior School

Wellbeing is at the heart of Putney. Supporting good physical and psychological health is core to all elements of our positive and happy school. Learning and connection are keys to wellbeing, and we still have both of these, even in lockdown.

From Monday 4 – Friday 8 May we remotely celebrated our annual Wellbeing Within week, focusing on wellbeing while online schooling.

Each day of the week was given an uplifting name and was filled with inspiring wellbeing ideas and activities. From Happy Monday, Tech-Free Tuesday to Breathe Friday. See below for a few examples of things we got up to.

On Wake-Up Wednesday our school caterers were kind enough to share a tasty smoothie recipe that we could try out at home for breakfast and get a great morning boost. For those of us missing our delicious school lunches, there were also ‘how to’ recipes for everyone to enjoy.

On Thinking Thursday, our Wellbeing Prefects held a Chat and Chill Thursday Workshop. All students were invited to log onto Microsoft Teams and join a relaxing chat and chill session to wind down the week.

It was a great opportunity to let off some steam and enjoy the company of others. The workshop also involved arts and crafts of personal choice to keep everyone’s creative minds occupied.

We have also been keeping an eye on the daily tips from our wellbeing guidance on the Meaningful May action calendar, you can click here to view a larger version of the calendar.

Both students and staff have been sending each other photos and videos of their wellbeing moments at home. Whether it’s playing board games, creating arts and crafts, listening to a certain song or spending some time with the family pet. Even though we are all busy working from home, it’s always good to remember to make time for a wellbeing activity. Below is Martina B, Year 7, paper crafting some transforming ninja stars!
