Feeling Good Week is a Hertfordshire-wide event that encourages schools and the wider community to promote young people’s emotional wellbeing by raising awareness of mental health and showing where support can be accessed within the community.
To celebrate this, St Mary’s arranged for some activities to take place during the student’s lunchtimes.
There were 5 events happening every day during the week to promote each aspect of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
Get Active – outside on the courts with ‘Capture the Flag’
Give To Others – by making ‘Friendship Bracelets’
Take Notice – with ‘Chair Yoga’
Learn Something New – with ‘Clay Modelling’
Connect With Others – by playing ‘Board Games’
Some on-line workshops covering ‘Self-kindness’ and ‘Connecting on-line’ were also available for students. These were provided in conjunction with the young person’s digital wellbeing service ‘with youth’ part of the Herts Mind service.
