Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Len­noxville

To­help stu­dents cope bet­ter with the stress­ful exam time com­ing up, and life in gen­eral, the Alexan­der Galt High School Li­brary has planned “Healthy Selfie Month”, a month of spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and dis­plays to help stu­dents learn how to take bet­ter care of them­selves.

The fo­cus of the first week is nu­tri­tion and body im­age, leading to yes­ter­day’s Anti-diet Day and demon­stra­tion of a smoothie-mak­ing bi­cy­cle in the cafe­te­ria. For the li­brary’s weekly dis­play, stu­dents in Ms. Gandey’s art class cre­ated works re­flect­ing the neg­a­tive im­ages many young people have of them­selves. Ev­ery Wed­nes­day dur­ing the month, healthy food like fresh veg­eta­bles and fruit will be served in the li­brary. Tea Room ac­tiv­i­ties, spon­sored this year by the Sher­brooke Ro­tary Club, will take place on Thurs­days and Fridays and will in­clude med­i­ta­tion and re­lax­ation tech­niques, stretch­ing and breath­ing ex­er­cises and, nat­u­rally, the serv­ing of ti­sanes and flavoured wa­ter.
