Learning about stress and how to handle it
January 28, 2018

January 2018 … How to handle stress has been a key topic this school year in Healthy NewsWorks newspapers.

Student reporters have interviewed teachers in their schools to find out what causes stress in their lives and what strategies they use to reduce it. For instance, William Cramp Fit Flyer reporters interviewed a dozen school staff members and discovered that their teachers exercise, play sports, read, listen to music, sing, dance, meditate, among other stress-busting activities.

In the process of reporting, they also drew illustrations of people who are calm and others who are feeling stress.
