Wellbeing Wednesday


Gisborne Secondary College places the wellbeing of all members of the school community as a high priority. In line with this, we are excited to introduce a new initiative called 'Wellbeing Wednesday'. This initiative will deliver content and resources to you each week catered specifically to students, parents and carers. We hope you find it highly valuable.


Week 2 – Relieving Stress Through Art

Results of a 2016 study published in the Journal of the American Art Therapy Association found ‘that just 45 minutes of creative activity can reduce your stress, regardless of artistic experience or talent.”

Week 3 – Mindfulness

In times of uncertainty, we look for techniques and strategies to help manage, reduce anxiety and stay connected. Mindfulness is a tool to help with our wellbeing.
