Mulvane Center staff celebrates Worldwide Recess Day


Worldwide Recess DayAll available Cowley College staff at the school’s Mulvane Center participated in Worldwide Recess Day on Friday, September 14. The event was hosted by the Cowley College Wellness Team. The program aims to prove the simple notion: Promoting a paid activity break-one that includes even short periods of movement-during the workday benefits employee health and well-being and may increase overall fitness over time. 

At 11 a.m., all employees left their desks and headed outside to revisit their childhood school day perk, recess. Staff played hopscotch, Twister Moves, horseshoes, Frisbee, sidewalk chalk, and volleying a ball.  Watermelon was served as a healthy mid-morning snack and students were invited to participate with the employees. After recess, Cowley College employees offered goodwill to the neighboring retirement center by delivering the remaining watermelon to the residents.
