This week in our Wellbeing program, we have discussed ‘How can we use our hobbies to de-stress?’
The girls have talked about what help them to de-stress and how they use their hobbies to relax and keep their balance. We have identified our hobbies, which is the first step to afer use them as beneficial activities and positive form of relaxation or destressing.
Art, music, sport, crochet were some of the ideas we came up with.
Today’s session is linked with what we have been talking about these days: ‘How can we identify personal stressors‘. The girls discussed the different things they associate with stress and how they deal with it. It was nice to learn from each others ways of dealing with stress.
Tonight we celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with moon. Each September, Chinese families gather to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. The moon’s roundness symbolizes harmony and prosperity, and the festival celebrates the harvest, often bringing together family members from near and far. This is an opportunity for cultural exchange which the girls have enjoyed this evening together in the House.
Today we welcome Rym. She will be working as a Deputy House Parent in Louis Yung 7. We are very happy to have her with us. Welcome Rym to the team!
Today we welcome Amira to the House. It is very nice to have a new member and the girls have been helping her to feel comfortable in her new home. Welcome Amira!
This month we are proudly participating in the September Challenge Competition in line with Pillar 1 of our wellbeing programme. Our girls are really motivated and we have achieved great results. Well done girls!!
We are now entering the second week of the first Pillar of our wellbeing programme – Nurturing Healthy Bodies and Minds.
One of the takeaway points from this pillar is “How important is sleep?”. We find it a crucial topic for the students to explore when discovering how to take care of themselves and how they can maintain a healthy body and mind.
This week during our House Assembly we watchted the TED-Ed video “The benefits of a good night’s sleep” from Shai Marcu which has generated interesting discussion about this important topic.
For the next weeks we will keep discussing about our sleeping habits and how we can improve them.
We have spend a nice weekend together, there was time to study, but also to have fun together. Some of the girls joined the Baking Club this weekend and we have had a movie night on Saturday. It is a great feeling spending time together!
