Wellness Week at Loretto College

February 13-17 marked Loretto College's winter term Wellness Week! This week was focused on activities that promote ways to nurture self-care and overall well-being for positive mental, emotional, and physical health.

Events included:

  • time to colour/make friendship bracelets

  • a 'Cozy Study Cafe'

  • an opportunity to share personalized, handmade Valentines and make a Valentine's Day goodie bag complete with study fuel of snacks fit for busy students during midterm season.

Residents continued to add to Loretto's kindness board, sharing such words of encouragement as: "You are wonderful, believe in yourself" and "You can do this...keep going !" The 'Kindness is Blooming' board is a student initiative supported by the House Council that serves an important role in creating a culture of care within our residence community and campus.

The week's highlight included a visit from Sunshine Therapy Dogs. Leila, Archie, and Louis visited Loretto on Feb. 16 and met lots of Loretto residents, staff, and Sr. Sarah! The dogs provided lots of kisses, cuddles, and stress relief right in the midst of midterm season and provided the perfect segue to Reading Week.

According to Don Francesca: "The therapy dog event at Loretto provided an opportunity for our community to gather, take a study break, and hang out with some of our new furry friends! The room was filled with smiles and laughter, and was definitely a highlight of our Wellness Week."
