Being physically active is instrumental in improving our wellbeing through the release of endorphins and connecting with others.  Combined with mindfulness and meditation, learn about ways you can promote total wellbeing in your school.

Why is it important?

Wellbeing is defined as 'the state of feeling healthy and happy'.  With a significant rise in mental health issues in children and young people, there has never been a greater need for schools to promote wellbeing whether through healthy eating, physical activity, mindfulness or meditation.

The benefits of this approach include:

  • Enhancing pupils' mental health
