Winter 2015 Berwick Today - Wellness

The Walsh Wellness Center

The new Wellness Center at Berwick Academy provides the physical space, programs, and resources to strengthen the School’s central core value of balance and highlights our commitment to the personal process of discovery, self-reflection, and growth. The Wellness Center cultivates greater emotional, mental, and physical health through three integrated pillars of programming: Movement, Health & Nutrition, and Resilience.
"A healthy community reflects a sense of mental, emotional, social, and physical well-being.  All degrees of wellness have to be inextricably linked together and valued for successful learning and growth to take place." - Karen Walsh, parent and lead donor to the Walsh Wellness Center
