Wellbeing

As a school we believe that it is really important to look after ourselves and each other.

As a Catholic school, our faith is crucial to our wellbeing. During this period, and within the Year of the Word, we can take comfort in the words of the Bible , take time to practise our Christian meditation and pray to God. Remember to say our school prayer, keeping our St. Vincent’s family in our hearts.

We also hope that our Wellbeing pages support this by sharing the best resources and ideas.

Sleep is always incredibly important for wellbeing.  During the coronavirus pandemic, many people have found their sleep patterns have been disrupted due to stress, worry, and no longer going out to school or work. Such a disruption can especially impact children and adults who are sensitive to changes in routine. If your usual sleep patterns have gone off-course during the pandemic, be reassured that you are not alone in this. This guidance  suggests ways to promote good sleep habits during the pandemic, and beyond.

Mind.org.uk have shared this research on the Five ways To Wellbeing which has been developed by the New Economics Foundation.

Learn

Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life. Engage with the school Blogs, read a new book, try one of the websites on our Home Learning page.

Give

Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy. Try to be kind to the people you are living with and see how this has a positive impact on your wellbeing.

Be active

Physical activity is great for promoting wellbeing. Even though we are staying indoors it is important to try and have regularly exercise.

Take notice

Being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your well-being. Whilst we are currently living a slower pace of life, take some time to enjoy the moment and the environment around you.

Connect

Relationships are important and at this time we need to make even more of an effort to stay connected with our friends and family.

The main way we are doing this at school is by interacting on this website. Try to write a comment on the Blogs and the news posts so you can stay connected with your classmates and teachers.
