SSC Panaon spearheads Wellness Week 2023
By Raymart O. Poras, SSC Panaon Officer
Under the coordination of the Supreme Student Council (SSC) of the USTP Panaon, the Wellness Week 2023 was held on May 8–12, 2023, at the USTP Panaon in Misamis Occidental. The SSC organized a number of fun activities during the week to support students’ wellbeing and foster a positive learning environment.
All students and professors participated in the first-year students’ energizing Zumba session, which served as the official opening of the week-long celebration.
Basketball, volleyball, and fiesta games are wellness-focused activities that excited and thrilled the students.
An ecumenical mass was also presided over to guide and enhance the attendees’ spiritual well-being.
Highlighting the event is the quest for the Mr. and Ms. Wellness 2023, where contestants presented their respective advocacies in promoting wellness.
The Week of Wellness also includes educational talks and workshops that equipped students with the skills and resources to manage their physical and emotional health. These educational programs gave students valuable skills that they can use throughout their life, like stress reduction techniques, constructive coping mechanisms, and self-care routines.
The Trailblazers believe that the wellness week was a success overall and hope for more of such events to follow.
