All Members – Wellbeing Fitness Challenge
Going through times of crisis and increased stress or anxiety, many of us move into autopilot. We keep working, we keep functioning, but our own wellbeing takes a back seat to our work and our students.
The AEU Executive has initiated the Wellbeing Fitness Challenge program for you to help you continue as a professional and healthy individual. But to be effective it requires your participation. The program is led by Mick Walsh, an expert with great experience in educator wellbeing. Mick has been a school leader and has worked in educator wellbeing for many years. Importantly, he genuinely cares deeply about you and your wellbeing.
