Wellbeing is the foundation of a Cognita Education and it is integral to our overall purpose of ‘Providing an inspiring world of education: building self-belief and empowering individuals to succeed’. To support our group-wide focus on wellbeing, we dedicated Friday 25th September 2020 as a day when every Cognita school focused solely on the wellbeing of students. This was a community day of activities and celebration involving students, staff and parents in every Cognita school and online, designed to expand everyone’s understanding of what wellbeing is – both mental and physical.
At Woodland Montessori Academy we focused on the importance of sleep and set the stage by having a pyjamas day. Throughout the morning the children participated in events including football with Major League Football Academy, movement art, messy art, yoga and Bollywood dancing. Also included in our wellness day was a focus on physical wellness. Staff contributed by making pineapple smoothies for children with the aid of Green Common and the Smoothie Bike!
