Wellbeing Wednesday Challenge

Dear St Anthony’s Preschool Families,

It is our tenth and final Wellbeing Wednesday for the year! This week’s challenge is the Health Eating Challenge.

Eating a wide variety of foods helps fuel our bodies, aids in good sleep and helps concertation levels. The World Health Organisation promotes having a healthy diet including eating the rainbow (eating a wide variety of foods).

Your Challenge is to try to eat the rainbow (a wide variety of foods) every day this week! Keep a diary and note any new foods you enjoy that you may want to add to your regular diet!

Waistlines tend to expand over the Christmas period, so hopefully this challenge will make some room for what is to come!


Peace

Wellbeing Wednesday Challenge

Dear St Anthony’s Preschool Families,

This week’s Wellbeing Wednesday challenge is the Gratitude Letter Challenge.

We have a lot of people in our lives that we are grateful for but rarely get the chance to tell them. Take the time to think about someone who has had a positive impact on your life.

Your challenge is to write them a letter to thank them for all that they have done for you. Once you have finished, be sure to share it with them or better yet, read it to them when you deliver it!

Pope Francis writes about the Joy of Acknowledging Others and we hope to spread this joy across our school this week.

Peace
