Health Week 2022- Health is Wealth!
Grades 1 to 5
“Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food.”
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”
Keep in minding this adage, this year at NPS, Koramangala we celebrated Health week between 11th to 15th July 2022 with the theme of – ‘Health is Wealth’.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing. For a healthy life cycle, a person needs to have a balanced diet and has to regularly exercise. And mental well being can positively impact the academic performance and success of students. The healthy week was kick started by “Mindful Monday as the students displayed their enthusiasm by joining in the energetic exercises that plays an important role in the healthy living and in fitness of body and mind in the school auditorium. They shared and created paper plans for a ‘Tasty Tuesday’ with their innovative and healthy recipes.
Students recognized the importance of ‘Wellness Wednesday’ after listening to Student Talks and the Guest Speaker’s presentation on nutrition, healthy lifestyle etc. They presented a special assembly on ‘Thoughtful Thursday” by weaving in the topic: Health is Wealth. Students energized themselves on ‘Fitness Friday’ with the high energy aerobics. They were exposed to the facets of body mechanics, anger management etc. The Health Week culminated with a quiz on various activities through the week.
Through the week, students also read and realised the thoughtful quotes on health and designed a health badge. They created a ‘Mood Board’ in the Life Skill classes and showcased their artistic side by depicting fruits and veggies as cartoons during Art periods. They squiggled and drew patterns in zentangles to soothe their minds.
In addition the students performed Yoga asanas during the Yoga periods to strengthen their body and mind. They promised and pledged to maintain a healthy and hygienic self. Students took away the A-Z of Health as a handout - which was a gist of activities done through the week along with the benefits of Being Healthy!
As the saying goes “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” So we can proudly say we took the baby steps in a long journey.
