Action for Happiness: Active April

Keeping active is a great way to boost our mental wellbeing. So this month we're encouraging everyone to get moving and get outdoors as much as possible. Whatever your circumstances or physical limitations, you can find your own ways to be a bit more active.
 We don't need to run marathons - there are simple things we can all do to take care of our bodies, like unplugging from technology, reconnecting with nature and getting more sleep!

Click here to access a copy of the Active April calendar which has great suggestions of how you can be active in lots of different ways.

Introducing ~ Nicole Singleton Learning Support Officer

My name is Nicole Singleton. I was born in Canberra last century & moved to Altona nearly 40 years ago with my mum, dad, brother & sister. I am the youngest (and tallest) in my family. 

I have been married for 26 years & have two beautiful children, Ben & Ciara, who make me smile each & every day.

I started working at St Mary’s back in 2005 & don’t intend to leave anytime soon. I love my job & try to make learning fun.

A favourite quote of mine is “every day is a gift, every day is a blessing & if you don’t believe me, try missing one.
