All-day health boost for Year 8
A full day of practical and theoretical workshops covering vital health, personal development and physical education issues, was undertaken by Year 8 PDHPE this week.
‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’ imparted age-appropriate knowledge and skills in a program of practical workshop and theory sessions.
The Black Dog Institute kicked off the day with a session on mental fitness and the day concluded with a ‘Verbal Combat’ – a performance about cyber bullying by Brainstorm Productions. Between these was a high-energy hip-hop workshop, another on sun safety, a body balance session combining yoga, tai chi and Pilates for core strength and inner calm, plus a ‘Breakfast, Brains and Brawn’ workshop focusing on the best way to refuel each day.
