Wellness Week

Wellness Week

Enniscorthy Community College enjoyed a fantastic week of fun and learning during our Wellness Week, which ran from Monday April 4th to Friday April 8th. The week has become a highlight of the school calendar, with activities that focus on wellbeing and connectivity running throughout the week. The school community looked the part in their new school half zips. Each day students got the opportunity to participate in our GUAWN (Get Up And Walk Now), which is a ten minute walk on our school Sli Na Slainte route. Staying connected to friends and classmates was a priority, and all classes enjoyed a scheduled “Juice & Chat”, activity, which was organised by our Fifth Year Leaving Cert Applied students. Fun games were provided for students to enjoy and test their reaction skills and accuracy in the Sports hall. The games included a giant inflatable dart board for kicking and throwing target practice, Air Hockey and the reaction games. This really brought out the competitive spirit in the staff and students.

Every breaktime challenges were provided for everybody to try out. These included Putting, Hoopla, Skipping, Limbo and Welly Throwing, while lunchtime activities gave the school members a chance to participate in Table tennis, make use of our state-of-the-art Fitness Suite, Hang Tough, Penalty and Basketball shootouts. While there were medals to be won, the focus was on participation and building confidence in our own abilities. Our First-year students promoted Wellbeing and displayed fantastic creativity in the poster competition which was run by the Art Department. These posters had a wide range of themes ranging from looking after our mental health, healthy eating, sleep and the importance of exercise. Our Home Economics Department investigated how much sugar is consumed by some students depending on the dietary choices they make and displayed the results in our canteen for all to see.

On Tuesday the Irish Wheelchair Association visited and our first years experienced using a wheelchair and played some wheelchair sports. The lifesaving skill of CPR was taught to our junior classes and later students were given the opportunity to put their CPR and AED skills into practise during a staged incident. Staff were treated to a healthy breakfast which was put together by the PE Department on Wednesday morning which enhanced the positivity and ambiance in the staffroom. Our Boro Suite students had a super time participating in the fun while also practicing their shots into the target board provided by the Woodwork Department. It is fair to say that the week was action packed and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Principal Iain Wickham particularly thanked the PE department of Jennifer King, Paula Doyle and Fiona Kehoe who organised the schedule of events and all the staff and students that participated and assisted with the activities.
