One of the Search Institutes findings was that young people who spent three to four hours in sports, clubs or other organisations per week either at school or beyond optimised their wellbeing. This is a key reason for the breadth and depth of co-curricular opportunity here at the College. Through these connections young people can find areas of interest, discover personal strengths, develop relationships, enhance their social and emotional capacities and yes, have fun!
Like all things in life, it is the story of the three bears. We can do too little and miss those opportunities for rejuvenation and refreshment or we can rush about and do too much, sapping ourselves of energy by leaving insufficient time for other areas of life including learning, work, family and rest. Slowing down and being thoughtful and mindful in how we use our time to rejuvenate, refresh and connect is good for us all. God has given us a great playground in which to thrive!
