Back in January 2019 students and staff were invited to join 'Health Builder' classes, aimed at improving their health and wellbeing by giving them the chance to take time out for themselves, learn a new practical skill and try something fun. The classes were a big hit with both students and staff.
Classes included Creative crafts, cake decorating, flowers arranging and singing. Classes were attended well and students reported that they benefited enormously from attending.
We asked students their reasons for taking part and about the impact it had made to their daily lives.
They said they attended to…
"Have a break from work at least once a week."
"Improve my fitness, to enjoy life more and increase my wellbeing."
"Learn a new skill and take time out for myself."
"Occupy my mind and brush up my skills."
And the impact…
"I have learnt lots. I have looked forward to each week and relaxed."
"Class has greatly improved my confidence and artistry. Relaxing and therapeutic."
"I have been inspired by others on the course."
"Time to focus on learning a new skill rather than work."
"Ignited interest in learning new things."
