We have various well-being intervention programmes provided by staff who have received specialist and specific training.
Also, Madi, the School Dog, is a therapy dog in training and receives regular training led by Canine Assisted Learning. Five members of staff have received training to support Madi which enables Madi to be a central part of the motivation and nurture programmes within the school, supporting specific learners with a variety of needs, being a faithful friend and managing to encourage children to enjoy school life on a daily basis.
We also promote aspects of the Five Ways to Well-being (Wales Health Board) across the school, promoting being active, taking notice, giving, connecting and continuing to learn. Many events are arranged which promote these approaches, such as the school's annual Race for Life Challenge for the children, fund-raising for Cancer Research. 'Ras Llanrug' is organised by the school staff in partnership with the Friends of the School and Eryri Harriers every year for children and adults.
The Health, Well-being and Eco Fortnight is arranged in the school annually and a great number of specialists provide physical and active experiences to our pupils across the school such as basketball, sports afternoon, an afternoon of cycling, walking to the park to pick up litter, yoga, walking to the Cwm-y-glo activity park, Reflexology workshop, non-screen day, dance club, food tasting to name just a few.
