Students across all year groups have clearly been having similar experiences this week as they demonstrated through their engagement in the “My Wellbeing Week in Photos” challenge. Everyone was tasked with taking a photograph a day for a full week - every picture had to show an element of PERMAH in action. It has been wonderful to see students spending time with family, engaged in their favourite hobbies, reading books, enjoying great food and having fun with friends. I hope you have had a chance to engage with your son or daughter in this challenge….and maybe even appear in some of their photographs!!
I was really excited this week to see the installation of two new Wellbeing themed displays - the Wellbeing Wall outside the Student Centre and the “Breaktime @ The Study” poster. In a recent survey, 96.3% of students recognised our two Wellbeing characters and these new additions further raise the profile of the wellbeing work we do at BIS. As well as increasing awareness when fully functional, the Wellbeing Wall will contain exciting information and opportunities for student engagement. As well as regular wellbeing articles which students will find interesting and thought provoking, there will be opportunities to learn what staff and other students do to experience positive wellbeing and to engage in a monthly wellbeing challenge.
