Title:
The Staff that Plays Together Stays Together!
Topic:
All work and no play makes teachers boring and burnt out. Join Joyce Sunada for an active session full of challenging and fun team building activities for you and your staff.
Summary:
According to the Alberta Education Framework for Wellness, "Social Wellness"is: relating positively to others and is influenced by many factors including how individuals communicate, establish and maintain relationships, are treated by others and interpret that treatment. This session provides activities and experiences that challenge participants to communicate, work together cooperatively and reach group goals. (Skills that are necessary to create a positive, healthy work environment) My hope is participants take the activities back to their schools and recreate them with their staff, thus enhancing their social connectedness and wellness. "Playing together" and having fun as a staff fosters "Social Wellness" thus enhancing the overall wellness of the Educator. The impact - improved wellness of the students and whole school community.
