Rang Orlaith accompanied by Ms. Gilbert and Ms. Mc Inerney attended Glanmire Parish Centre on Friday 8th February 2019. The workshop for the students focused on their Wellbeing as they are mid-way in the Junior School.
Leaving GCC at 9.10, arrived at the Parish Centre at 9.30 after a brisk walk. The students took part in a ‘Sleep’ workshop, discussing the benefits of prolonged deep sleep and setting challenges for the students to improve their sleep. One of the biggest challenges for the students is to turn off screens two hours before bed and not use their phone as an alarm.
The students brought a healthy lunch and compared lunch ideas. After break the students took part in gratitude mediation and were invited to the church for personal prayer or reflection.
Below are comments from R. Orlaith:
“I thought today was relaxing and peaceful when we were meditating and when we went to the Church”
“We learnt a lot about sleep and wellbeing. The biggest challenge for us would be to put our phones away and turn them off at night time”
“The healthy lunch was really fun and different as it made us think about what we eat and what food is good for us and we should have more fruit and vegetables in our lunches”
“We walked briskly to the Parish Centre and back, this was good as it gave us energy and made us feel fresh. Exercise is very important for our wellbeing”
Thanks to Rang Orlaith for their active participation in their Mid-Way Workshop.
