On Friday, 10 May 2024, the Student Development & Support Office in collaboration with the Mentoring Facilitators and Student Mentors in the Faculty of Health Sciences hosted a FUN Day for student mentors and mentees. This event was a great success! It brought together student mentors and first-year students from various academic programs to relax and connect with their peers in a fun and casual setting.

The FUN Day was sponsored by Virgin Active and Red Bull, two well-known brands in the health and wellness space, who made the event even more enjoyable for attendees. There was a wide range of activities and attractions to keep everyone entertained, including fun games, challenges, Zumba, and Yoga sessions.

The event allowed students to explore new activities, connect with their peers, and take a break from their demanding academic schedules. It was a great way for students to recharge and focus on their mental health and well-being. The event was a huge success amongst attendees, who had a fantastic time bonding with their peers and enjoying the various activities offered. The atmosphere was lively and vibrant, with plenty of laughter and positive energy flowing throughout the afternoon. Students left the event feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to write their mid-year exams.

The FUN Day was not just about having a good time – it also served as a valuable opportunity for students to network, socialise, and build connections within the FHS. It highlighted the importance of fostering a sense of belonging and support amongst students which is essential for their overall well-being and success in their academic careers. As the students continue to rave about FUN Day and its positive impact on their mental health and wellness, they are eagerly anticipating more events like these in the future. This feedback came very strongly on the student survey we opened after this event. The SDSO has also received glowing feedback from Faculty staff and is already planning new and exciting activities to keep the momentum going.

In conclusion, the FUN Day at FHS was a memorable and enjoyable experience for all who attended. It brought students together and promoted a sense of community and camaraderie. It emphasised the importance of taking time out for self-care and relaxation. With the support of sponsors like Virgin Active and Red Bull, the event was a great success and left a lasting impression on everyone who attended.
