Before the sun had even risen over Shore Road, a stream of mothers, daughters, and grandmothers rolled into the Girls' School for the first Parents & Friends event for 2023. Back by popular demand, the annual Wellness Morning brought together our students with important female figures in their lives for a morning of rejuvenation and learning. The event kicked off early at 7 am with a yoga class led by Sarita Blankenberg, one of the school's mothers. Participants could stretch and breathe deeply, setting the tone for the rest of the day.

Following the yoga session, Kathy Harding from The Resilience Project gave a short talk on exercising happy, healthy minds. Her message was simple yet powerful, consisting of three tips: practising gratitude, empathy, and mindfulness. She explained how these practices could help us maintain a positive and resilient mindset, even in challenging times.

The morning concluded with a nutritious breakfast provided by Bowl and Arrow. Participants were able to enjoy a variety of healthy options while mingling and catching up with one another. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, with mothers and daughters chatting and laughing over smoothie bowls and cups of coffee.

The Wellness Morning was an excellent opportunity for mothers and daughters to be together and prioritise their health and well-being. The event served as a reminder that taking care of ourselves is essential and enjoyable when done in the company of loved ones. By the end of the morning, participants left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, with a renewed commitment to practising gratitude, empathy, and mindfulness in their daily lives.
