Screen Free Week

Screen-Free Week and Digital Wellness Day

Pupils in the Junior School have been taking part in a digital detox this week, switching off the screens and spending some more time learning without the use of technology. Some of the activities included origami peacocks, reading and card games.

Friday 7 May is Digital Wellness Day, which is a day to rethink your relationship with technology. Hugo, Heriot’s new Pets As Therapy Dog introduced Digital Wellness Day at Senior School assembly, with Mrs Wise mentioning the key reasons why it’s important to think about the relationship we all have with technology.

Digital detoxes are important for wellbeing and productivity as seen in the digital flourishing wheel below.
