Each day of Rosmini’s Wellbeing Week 2018 focuses on an important aspect of students’ mental health. On Monday 5th of November, 3rd and 6th year students learned key skills to help them be more resilient when faced with the increased expectations of preparation for their state exams. Our Leaving Cert classes goals set SMART goals to give them a clear focus to work towards over the coming months. They also used a series of mindfulness strategies to help them take better care of their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Our Junior Cert class groups explored the holistic benefits of creatively managing stress. They were given time to switch off from technology by playing board times, colouring mandalas and doing some meditation. Special care-packs were given to our 3rd years to remind them of how special and valued they are.
Rosmini is delighted to be involved in the DCU UniTY programme. UniTY is a skills based programme specifically aimed at Transition Year students.
