John The Baptist Health and Wellbeing Week May 2020

Monday 11th – Friday 15th May

Staff, Staff and Families,

Welcome to the 2020 John the Baptist, Health and Wellbeing week with a difference! From Monday 11th to Friday the 15th May, we are going online to broadcast a week of fun, exciting and entertaining activities for you to do at home.  We have created a timetable set out of fun activities under 4 different heading: Physical Challenges, Mindfulness Activities, Nutrition and Baking, and Skills challenges. We encourage all students, staff & family members to get involved by:

  1. HAVING FUN!!!!
  2. Following the schools twitter account – @jtbcstweets click HERE  
  3. Follow the timetable below for the daily activities.
  4. Keep an eye on the daily updates of challenges/activities on the school website & twitter account.
  5. Send in your videos or pictures to the school twitter page using hashtags #JTBCS #health&wellbeingweek

There will be prizes for creativity under each section and the PE department judging panel will choose the winners at the end of the week.

Finally, we know we are all apart at this difficult time, we want to set a challenge that we can complete TOGETHER as a school throughout the week.  Here we would like if all staff, students & families could join and let’s see how many kilometres we can walk or run over the week while making sure to adhere to Government 5km guidelines.

  • Please download the Strava App (see the logo above)
  • Click explore
  • Search for John The Baptist CS and Join the group.

We are one school; one community and we will do this together!
