Wednesday late afternoon Bundoora staff gathered outside b.220 for cheese, drinks and chocolate that slowly melted in the sun. Surrounded by blue sky and beautiful gum trees it was a perfect opportunity to come together with valued colleagues and share wellbeing ideas to kick off the year. Great to hear so many positive things we already do to look after ourselves and plans we might put in place for 2019. As we talked ideas emerged. Seizing the moment, Richard worked with Pam to secure a room on Wednesday lunchtimes for meditation for students and staff. More details to come.
Many thanks to the creative minds in the Staff Wellbeing Working Group (Ros, Kathy L, Toni, Jason and Elena) for kicking this off, as well as Shona who helped with food and Diana who helped with set up and cleaning up and to all the staff who contributed ideas. We’ll review the ideas generated and get back to you all shortly with possible next steps.
I look forward to a similar event on the City on Wednesday February 27.
