Well-Being at STU

Well-Being at STU
Stuart Hall School

Well-being is often interconnected with physical health and wellness. It involves numerous practices like maintaining a nutritious diet, engaging in regular exercise, and ensuring adequate amounts of sleep. Although these methods have been scientifically proven to promote good health, well-being extends far beyond these measures. Explore the following article to discover how Stuart Hall places a significant emphasis on prioritizing well-being, encompassing both physical and mental aspects within and beyond the classroom.

Here are STU, we have broken up well-being into three categories: health, happiness, and prosperity. While it is commonly understood that no one at Stuart Hall can directly transfer these qualities to an individual, we strive to foster an environment for well-being to come naturally. This is achieved in a couple of different ways:

 

Firstly, well-being at Stuart Hall is nurtured through athletics. When getting involved in sports at Stuart Hall, you are not only joining a team; you are joining a family. Being a part of a team works on skills such as communication, resilience, discipline, commitment, and goal setting, all of which are crucial aspects of creating a healthy mind. STU’s athletics program strives to help build practical skills that achieve healthy well-being, both physical and mental, while also nurturing a community and environment of support. 

 

Well-being in the classroom is arguably one of the most important aspects of this goal. Stuart Hall's class sizes, on average, maintain a 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio. A smaller class allows for greater student participation, more significant relationships with peers, and a transparent relationship between the teacher and student. Through this model, students can be themselves, express their interests, and be heard in an environment open to self-expression and growth. Although well-being in this sense is not practiced physically, our commitment to personal engagement in the classroom is critical in developing a healthy mind and individual self.

 

Our final example of well-being is found in our tight-knit community. Rather than being solely built on a common identity or similarity, our community thrives on friendship and acknowledgment of our differences. We wholeheartedly celebrate the unique qualities of each individual and strive to see everyone for who they are. To foster and nourish this wonderful community of students and faculty/staff, we organize various events throughout the year that bring us together. Our cherished traditions, such as the Red/White games, Loving Cup/Graduation, and Homecoming (to name just a few), hold a special place in our community. We strive to share meals and listen to one another's stories, spend time having conversations in the hallways; all of which foster a deep sense of connection and kinship within our School. We value our community as a whole, but we also deeply appreciate and cherish each and every person who contributes to its vibrant fabric.

 

Here at Stuart Hall, well-being is not strictly relegated to physical improvement. While it certainly can be, we also strive to push well-being through the individualistic approach to being YOU. We see you; we hear you, and we are here to support you during your time here and beyond. That is well-being at Stuart Hall School.
