Smithton Primary – Wellbeing Challenge 2022

In very simple terms, people with mental wellbeing have the ability to feel good and to function well in their day-to-day lives.

At Smithton Primary, we want to ensure that promoting mental wellbeing is at the very heart of what we do.  We feel that the school is well placed to help develop a better understanding of mental wellbeing across our whole school community:  pupils, staff, parents, neighbours and friends. 

The promotion of mental wellbeing can help to safeguard people’s mental health, and therefore its importance cannot be overstated.

As part of our work on this, we would like to invite pupils and their families to take part in our WELLBEING CHALLENGE.   Throughout the month of May 2022, we will focus on the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’.  These 5 Ways (Connect, Keep Learning, Give, Take Notice, Be Active) may help to develop a greater sense of contentment and life satisfaction, which will in turn lead to enhanced mental wellbeing.

We hope that families throughout the Smithton Primary school community will enjoy this challenge together and will perhaps feel the benefits of it.  How many of these wellbeing-enhancing activities will you and your family be able to do?

In the process, we are also hoping to raise some money for our school and for The Haven Centre.  We would be most grateful if you were able to consider gaining a little sponsorship for your endeavours!

We aim to communicate with you further throughout the month of May.  Keep an eye out for some tips on how to keep your mental wellbeing positive.
