Grade Six Wellness Run

Date: October 4, 2017 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: Upcoming Events

The girls’ grade 6 wellness group has been running twice a week at lunch since the beginning of September.

Providing a wellness program to the girls in grade 6 is allowing them to learn about, and discuss, issues that are important to them.

Our goal in running this program is to instill confidence and build positive behaviours, as well as health and leadership skills. While they warm –up, as they run, and when they cool down, we discuss issues such as positive self-talk, healthy body images, standing up for oneself and others, and understanding unrealistic media images and messages.

The final 5km run will take place on October 29th at Gatineau Park as part of the MEC 5km race series.
