Health and Wellness

Motto: “Feel Well, Do Well”.

Goal: The goal of the Wellness Program is that each student optimizes healthy coping strategies, finds good balance and achieves academic success throughout school.

Mission: The mission of the Wellness Program is encouraging students to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle by balancing all aspects of their lives, and to provide the skills for students to achieve academic success and to become positive role models in the society.

The Wellness Program is divided into five sections: Physical, Psychological, Academic, Social and Community.
For each section, there are activities which promote health and self-care. Students participate on the planning committee for the Wellness program and assist in the coordination of social events, workshops, speakers and other relevant activities.

The School believes in a student friendly approach to wellness. A healthy environment is one in which there is not only an absence of harmful conditions, but an abundance of health promoting ones.
