Health and Wellbeing
Health and Wellbeing Committee
We are proud to be in the Health and Wellbeing Committee and value our role in making St Philip Evans a healthier and fitter school. We strive to develop the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of our community.
The Health and Wellbeing Committee members worked together to create the below poster to share the messages that we would like our school community to feel and value. We wanted to introduce ourselves by choosing places in school that we felt represent our Health and Wellbeing Committee:
During one of our recent committee meetings, we discussed as a group how the choices and actions that we take through our role as Health and Wellbeing Committee support us in living out our virtues.
Curious and Active – we are curious to learn how to positively impact the health and wellbeing of our whole school and wider community. We are active when we choose to spread kindness. We are active when we choose to help to improve the health and wellbeing of others.
Intentional and prophetic – We are intentional as we live to be kind and we are prophetic.
Compassionate and loving – we consider ourselves to be informally known as the Committee of Kindness. We live like Jesus as we spread kindness like sunshine throughout our whole school and wider community.
Eloquent and truthful – We are eloquent and truthful as we share messages to promote the importance of valuing your own health and wellbeing.
Grateful and generous – we are grateful to God for our healthy minds and healthy bodies. We are generous to ourselves and others by choosing to take care of our physical and mental health.
We took part in Children's Mental Health Week 2023
We worked together to decorate the path leading to the exit gates to give everyone a reason to smile on their way home.
Here our some examples of areas that we continue to monitor and develop as a committee:
- Fruit trolley relaunch: we carried out class surveys to collect data and see what fruit everybody would like to see in our school fruit trolley.
- Healthy lunchbox tokens: we designed our own lunchbox token sheets and then voted as a committee on which design to roll out across Years 2 - 6.
- Daily mile evaluation: we asked everybody how they feel about the daily mile. We love it!
- Hap-pea Friday: our school dinner option on a Friday includes peas. As a committee, we are starting 'Hap-pea Friday!' to make eating peas more fun.
- Glitter Bugs: we loved using Glitter Bugs to learn more about hand hygiene. We evaluated our session and thought it would be extremely beneficial for all classes to use the glitter bugs, especially given the current pandemic. Our committee members said, "We want to stop our friends and family being unwell at Christmas so we want everyone to wash their hands properly".
"We are learning to be healthy, confident individuals"
Please tell us any suggestions that you have. Our committee members are always happy to listen. #SPEHealthandWellbeing
