November is Wellness Month! If you haven’t already noticed, Catholic Central’s Wellness Committee is organizing many events this month to promote health to the body and soul of our community.
You probably already noticed that there is a dodgeball tournament going on right now. Many posters of the team members are covering up the trophy gallery right by the gym. The matches are supposed to be quite competitive and amusing to watch. Wouldn’t it be fun to see the teacher team get beaten by a group of ruthless high school students? If this is your type of fun, don’t hesitate to show up and support your friends (or favourite teacher)! The next tournaments will be held this Thursday, November 26th, next Tuesday (December 1st) and next Thursday (December 3rd).
If you come to school early, you may have noticed some teachers and students handing out granola bars, juice boxes, and fruit in the cafeteria at both the East and West Campuses every Tuesday and Thursday morning before class time. The Wellness Committee is also planning to have a smoothie day this Friday (November 27th). Don’t miss out on this because it will be quite delicious.
Nurses presently enrolled at the University of Lethbridge are also taking over the cafeteria on December 4th to talk about mental health. Last week, they had a poster about physical education and, after checking it out with my friends, I can say I learned a lot on the subject and I think it is also a great opportunity to talk to future nurses, especially if you’re thinking of pursuing this career path.
I have just listed a few exciting events that the Wellness Committee is currently organizing. And, being a part of the committee myself, I can tell you we are planning some pretty fun activities for the rest of the year. Also, if you wish to join the Wellness Committee, just come to the Biology classroom on Campus East, every Wednesday at Flex. If you’re on Campus West, show up on Thursday at Flex in room 522.
On that note, I wish you good health and I hope to see you participating in at least one of these fun events!

Her favourite things about CCH are the incredible teachers and students that make school fun.
