Wellbeing. Pillar 1. Nurturing Healthy Bodies and Minds

At Collège du Léman, our students ‘ well-being is defined as being physically and mentally healthy and able to cope with life’s challenges positively and constructively.
Our student’s health and academics are very important and this year we want to have a different focus on their well-being by providing them with the tools that a teenager needs to maintain a healthy body and mind.
During our house assembly, tonight has seen the launch of the First Pillar of our well-being program, Nurturing Healthy Minds and Bodies and we watched this interesting video about Discover how we can use sport and our hobbies to maintain a healthy mental balance.
This pillar aims to highlight the importance of a healthy body and mind in our day to day to lives. A crucial part of this pillar will be to help the students maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle in many aspects, including sleeping patterns, physical activity, nutrition, and relaxation methods.
We will be having discussions with our students over the next few weeks in our House meetings based on these two takeaway points 1: First: Discover how we can use sport and our hobbies to maintain a healthy mental balance and Second: The importance of a healthy balanced diet.
We will ask our students a reflective question:  How have their friends helped them in achieving a healthy balanced lifestyle regarding nutrition and physical activity
This first Pillar will accompany our students through these first weeks of the school year, and it will offer them the opportunity to work on a range of many different projects and activities until the October Break.
Throughout this school year, students will be encouraged to complete an individual project and a community project for each of the five Pillars of Well-being. These projects are focused on activities that are meant to support growth and self-awareness. We believe that this will allow our students of all age groups to take ownership of their well-being.
