Wellness Week at SEK-Qatar

Our PYP Student Council have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you some excitement for the last week of school before the term break.

Each day this week was titled with a special theme.

PYP kicked off with a “Crazy Hair Day” on Sunday, hair styles you have never seen before!

As SEK-Qatar has over 60 different nationalities across all grades, the following day was all about different countries and cultures. Students were invited to dress up in their traditional outfits from their homes culture or country. Special for not wearing school uniform for once.

Keeping up the dress up spirit, on Tuesday, students came as their favourite book or movie character, it almost felt like Hollywood in our school building. We also saw many students dressed up in purple to celebrated International Women’s Day as a call for equality and a symbol of women’s social, economic, cultural & political achievements.

How can you have a week of dressing up without digging out that animal costume you love so much? We encouraged students to especially dress up as their favourite endangered animal to raise awareness. Students talked about why they wanted to share this animal, and how they could stop it from going extinct.

On the last day the theme was “Trashion” – Trash and Fashion! Students were asked to make the best outfits out of trash or recycled materials. This was to visualise how much waste we create each day. Maybe we can even reuse our collection of bags from your local supermarket in a creative way!?

Such a fun way to close this term by focusing on different topics each day. Thanks to all staff and students who contributed.

SEK-Qatar wishes everyone a great term break and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again for our 3rd term.
