WESTFORD – The Guidance Department at Nashoba Valley Technical High School held its first annual Wellness Day on June 13, with students in ninth, 10th and 11th grades participating in various activities to promote physical and mental wellness.
Guidance Counselor Jessica Lamond, who spearheaded the event, said the daylong Wellness Fair allowed students to be active in sporting events, find new passions, and learn relaxation techniques.
“Our Nashoba Tech Wellness Day was extremely successful thanks to our fabulous teachers, enthusiastic students and generous contributions from out sponsors – the Westford Education Foundation, our Nashoba Tech community, DCU, Lowell Five, the Nashoba Tech Foundation and the Norman Day Company,” Lamond said.
The Wellness Fair included activities involving martial arts, self-defense, crafting, science, puzzles, henna art, chess, philosophy, flag football, disc golf, workouts, walking, games, yoga and basketball, aromatherapy, spa treatments, meditation, reading and more.
Students were also sent home with creative projects, including dreamcatchers, crystal beaded bracelets, art projects, candles and crafts.
