During an enrichment day at Christ’s College, we ran a ‘Getting the Balance Right’ workshop with four groups of year 11s. We worked with the students to discover the importance of having a balance in the areas of ‘work, rest, and play’.
This workshop was to help prepare them as they get ready for exam season, and 98% said they had a better understanding of the importance of work, rest, and play at the end of the workshops.
In one activity, we made card towers and discussed how support from their peers builds them up. When the card towers fell down, they spoke about potential setbacks in life and came up with solutions on how to deal with them.
