Wednesday Wellness Walking Group

Sarah Adams
Kalamunda Senior High School

We are so lucky to have an amazing Chaplain at Kalamunda SHS who volunteers her time every week to promote walking with our students. Last term the 'Wednesday Wellness Walking Group' began appearing in our school notices with all welcome to join.

Run by our lovely Chaplain Desi, the group meets once a week and promotes walking at lunchtimes. Walking in the fresh air aims to support student wellbeing, encouraging individuals to take some time out from the day and to reflect and improve their mindset. With a group of like-minded walkers taking to the oval on Wednesdays, it's also a great opportunity to talk about things that might be on your mind.

Thank you to Desi for being such a great role model for our students and promoting the benefits of walking to our community!

Hi Sarah - your Chaplain's Wellness Walking Group sounds like a lovely social way to walk away any of the stresses of school life! Maybe she could link in with a future walk to school activity? Remember that any activity helping to increase active travel to school earns you points!

Hi Sarah. Thanks for sharing this story. It sounds like your Chaplain is really available to the kids and happy to promote exercise as a great way to keep their minds healthy. I'm sure the walking at lunchtime will led to more walking to school as students discover the great benefits to be had.
