Wellbeing Day - Edition 13, Term 3

On Friday 20 August, our students and staff spent the day focussing on their individual wellbeing and mental health. We hope our community took this time to recharge the batteries in whatever way is most effective so we can approach the next phase of Remote Learning, refreshed and motivated.

Staff and Student Reflections:


It was a fantastic opportunity on Friday to step away from the screens and mentally clear my mind. I spent the day by doing different things that I really enjoy and that allow me to mentally and emotionally recharge; going for a run through the local park, spending time reading a book (The Lost Man by Jane Harper – a great thriller/drama set in the outback of Queensland, and even better than The Dry!), playing some video games with some mates, and watching a movie in the evening. It was just a great chance to allow myself to focus on the things I enjoy and remember that while the lockdown is tough, there are still plenty of things to enjoy and be grateful for.

We spent our time wisely, I decided to finish all due work assessments. Emily chose to get some sunshine.

On Friday we were lucky at JPC to have a wellness day, I took the day to do things that I enjoyed doing I baked cupcakes and spend time with my family. I also loved the little sleep in.

On wellbeing day, I had lots of fun. I went on a bike ride around my area whilst listening to music and then I spent the afternoon doing dance on zoom. 

I really enjoy having wellbeing days as it gives you a break from school and you get to do anything you want! I am really looking forward to the next one we have.
Bella, Year 7 

My wellbeing day was spent doing what I do best. Cooking, reading and relaxing! It was great to spend some time away from the computer. I grabbed a good book, and settled in for the afternoon. The day ended with woodfired pizzas, with homegrown ingredients (yes, I am trying to show off by mentioning my garden).
