I invited Grainne to speak to our staff about nutrition and wellness at the start of our school year. As a Principal, I wanted to commence the school year with something a little different: to focus on the wellbeing of my teaching and school staff in order to help with their personal wellbeing, energy, motivation and interaction with our pupils.
Grainne focused in on various aspects of wellbeing including nutrition, sleep, exercise and stress management. She also brought in recipes and healthy food samples which went down a treat in our staff room.
Grainne’s visit encouraged and motivated us to form a Staff Well-Being Committee. This Committee organises on a termly basis various events focusing on our exercise, healthy eating and many more well-being activities. We are all now enjoying the benefits of her superb advice, eating better, exercising more and enjoying better health.
I would highly recommend that you consider inviting Grainne to visit your school to speak on nutrition and wellness. She is certainly one of the best motivational and knowledgeable speakers I have heard to date on these important topics, especially during these challenging times.
