Festival of Wellbeing 2022
Welcome to the King's High Festival of Wellbeing
While we prioritise wellbeing all year round at King’s High, during the Festival of Wellbeing, our community dedicates time to focus and reflect on our wellbeing, and the strategies that we can all adopt, to not just cope with the challenges of life, but to enjoy the life that we are living.
Some highlights from our lunchtime workshops for pupils include:
Mindfulness through Music
Managing Exam Stress
Gardening Time: spend some time digging, weeding and planting in the school garden.
Parsnip Time: relaxing downtime with Parsnip, our school dog.
Other events include a Wellbeing Fair in the Quad, to include a book swap; wellbeing information stations; cake sale; play-station; bubbles; pebble painting; crystals, and the Smoothie Bikes; Form time focus on movement, mindfulness and wellbeing activities - and not forgetting the highly popular Ice Cream Van on site on Friday lunchtimes!
We are proud to partner with the following groups and organisations throughout our Festival:
