January 13, 2011 - On Tuesday, January 11, 2011 Marymount Academy hosted a Wellness Day for all students in grades 7 – 12. The day was a student driven initiative planned by teacher Allison Simpson’s Grade 11 Peer Leadership and Support class. The students had been working on this day for several months and wanted to bring health and wellness experts to the school to allow their classmates the opportunity to learn about positive life choices in health, life and careers.
Some of the 35 experts included several different types of health professionals, journalists, chefs, and fitness instructors. The students were also treated to a visit by Greater City of Sudbury Mayor Marianne Matichuk who spoke to entire student population about her personal life and career experiences, as well as women in non-traditional roles. Teacher and wellness day co-ordinator Allison Simpson was really pleased with the day’s events and felt that the students thoroughly enjoyed listening to the experts and learning about ways to make positive changes in their health and well-being. “For the students who organized this event, I am really proud of their hard work and development of their leadership qualities which is what this course is all about,” Simspon said. “And the entire student population benefited from this class’ hard work and were able to take advantage of this great experience through different workshops and guest speakers – all in all a great day for the Regals!”
