Last week at MacLachlan College we celebrated Wellness Week. The week focused on our wellness initiatives, mindful activities and encouraged students to pursue conversations around physical and mental health. The grand finale was our Wellness Fair and Wellness Workshops on Friday where we were joined by amazing wellness-focused businesses and professionals.
A huge thank you to our Wellness Committee and all our MacLachlan Staff for all the planning and effort put into making this year’s Wellness Week and Wellness Fair a huge success. Thank you to all our local businesses and individuals for joining us during the week and dedicating themselves to the pursuit of wellness.
