Getting Comfortable Being Wrong - Dr Josh Wolrich
16th May 2019
As part of our Academic Enrichment Programme, we welcomed Dr Josh Wolrich to talk to our senior pupils about 'Getting Comfortable Being Wrong', which focused on the efforts he has made on social media to challenge nutrition fads and unhealthy diets
He spoke about the dangers of dieting and highlighted the risks of thinking that weight loss equates to improved health, with an impassioned plea for a more nuanced and honest conversation about food, weight and health.
Alongside this, Years 7 to Upper Sixth took part in teacher- and pupil-led discussions around positive body image, and took a ‘Mental Health Minute’ several times throughout the day to ensure they were giving their minds and bodies opportunities to stop, re-balance and then move forward with clarity. Well done to all pupils on their participation and mature input this week!
