An invitation can be something anticipated, it can be something that is unexpected, but it seems a shared experience for everyone today is that those invites to weddings, parties and social events are no longer providing a covering on the fridge door. But don’t despair…
All in our Carey community, students, staff and parents, can accept our Invitation to Wellbeing. Through this 21-day online event, we all have an opportunity to engage a breadth of wellbeing initiatives as we move towards our final three weeks of term.
On each of the weekdays, commencing today, Thursday 20 August, there will be an expert who will assist in areas of wellbeing, with a Canvas site your access point. Open the site and you will find a broad array of live webinars, links to materials bespoke to Carey and resources intended to help all of us in our hub at home.
On each Thursday through to the end of term, Dr Arne Rubinstein will present a live evening webinar on Whole Family Wellbeing. These are intended as fun, interactive parent and children sessions that will build family relationships and help you find opportunities for growth during lockdown.
On Fridays it is Sofia Levin in the kitchen, with the focus on Nutritional Wellbeing, cooking up healthy and tasty treats to eat.
On Mondays it is a live webinar with Dr Adam Deacon, a sports psychiatrist, looking at Physical Wellbeing, challenging us to embrace the lack of structured play as we each find ways to be active.
On Tuesdays it is Will Centurion, a performing artist who is also a psychologist looking at our Creative Wellbeing. You will be asked to consider what it means to be creative, and to look at pathways to sustain your creative juices.
And on Wednesdays the ‘Mid-week Rev Up’ series continues, with our School Chaplain Rev. Gerry Riviere feeding our Spiritual Wellbeing.
There are many benefits to be found if you decide to explore the rich resources on offer. Through this 21-day wellbeing journey, you will learn how to care for your wellbeing during this period of lockdown, you will be provided points of conversation and ways to encourage others’ wellbeing, and collectively, we will enhance our connection with each other as part of the Carey community.
The starting point for healthy connection is to choose to interact. We encourage you to take that step and accept our Invitation to Wellbeing.
