Feel better with Great Yarmouth College
LOOK after yourself- that’s what Great Yarmouth College students will be told in two days of activities, information and advice on ways to improve their wellbeing next week.
Five Ways in Two Days is a free health and wellbeing event to let students know what help and advice is available in college and outside in the community to help them stay safe and be healthy.
Experts from a range of organisations and agencies that work with young people will be in the Conference Room on the Southtown campus on Monday and Tuesday with demonstrations and information about health and fitness – from nutrition to drugs, sexual health to alcohol, anxiety to general health.
Among the agencies are the Matthew Project, the NHS, GFS Platform, Norfolk Carers, NORCAS and Norfolk Police.
David Lawrence, student welfare adviser –individualised learning, came up with the idea to help learners improve their health in five ways - by being active, taking notice, connecting, learning and giving.
