SBCS’ 1st Health & Wellness Week came to a spectacular finale on Sunday, 3rd February at the Central Athletic Club in Montrose Chaguanas! But before we get to that, here’s a reminder of what else happened as the week was winding down.
Mr. Basdeo of the Raja Yoga Centre guided us through a meditation and relaxation exercise, which left the participants feeling refreshed on Thursday afternoon. However, the pace of activities changed dramatically on Friday, when we hosted our Carnival Karaoke Competition (See article “Carnival 2013 at SBCS, Champs Fleurs”).
On Sunday we were able to test the endurance of our students with aerobics and rock-wall climbing. Our aerobics instructor, Carlyle, took us through an hour of aerobics and floor-work (read: Abs! Abs! Abs!). The photos tell the tale of calories burned! Our Trincity and San Fernando campuses were well represented during the aerobics burn, but it was the Champs Fleurs students who were judged to have had the best endurance. Our Aerobics Challenge Winners are (it’s a tie!):
• Arnold Andrews – ABE Level Four Diploma
• Keanu Crosby – BSc. Business Administration (Royal Holloway)
Students and Staff also rose to the challenge of the rock-wall. The SBCS crew put serious effort into scaling that tricky apparatus, so “Congratulations” to all those reaching the top of the wall – Beginners, Intermediate and Expert contenders! Those of you, who have yet to conquer the wall, don’t miss the chance the next time SBCS throws out the challenge.
Thanks go out from the Student Services Department to all our participants, students and staff, for making Health and Wellness Week a memorable and entertaining experience.
As the Carnival season heats up, take a moment to evaluate: “How well are you taking care of your body?” If you want to be physically and mentally fit into your golden years, it is best to take charge of your “Wellness” now.
Student Services is turning the focus on health and wellness promotion during the week of January 28th – February 3rd at our Champs Fleurs Campus. Students & staff will have the opportunity to:
• learn more about lifestyle diseases, meditation, and personal safety
• play a game (Wii sports) and discover that laughter really is the best medicine
• sample the healthy snacks and foods on display.
But wait, there’s more:
For the benefit of all campuses and all of our students (full-time and part-time), we are also planning a fitness event at the Central Athletic Gym in Chaguanas. On Sunday, February 3rd, at 2:00 p.m. come out and get your physical fitness on! Feel the burn during an aerobics session or challenge yourself to climb the rock-wall! Spaces are limited, so if you’re interested sign up with Student Services now!
