  12. 12. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolScottish FoodsScottish Salmonsalmon tends to be smoked, and thinly sliced, served as an entrée.Stovied Tatties (or Stovies)Stovies are a potato-based dish, designed to use up left over meat and vegetables.Several onions should be cut into small pieces and fried in a good amount of beef dripping (fat from the cookedmeat) in a large pot. Scraps of meat and left-over vegetables (usually carrots and peas) are then added to the fry-ing onions.Six to eight good sized potatoes are peeled and cut into 3cm (1.5") pieces. Approximately 2.5cm (1") of water isadded to the pan containing the fried onion mixture and the potato pieces are added to this, seasoned with salt andthen left to simmer until the potatoes are soft. More water is added only if the pan is likely to become dry.The resulting stovies should have the consistency of mashed potatoes, but the potato pieces should still be detect-able. Modern cooks would add a beef stock cube to the mixture prior to simmering.PorridgeA simple dish, made of boiled oatmeal. It needs to be boiled slowly and stirred continuously with the traditional spirtle - awooden stick which is about 30cm (or 12") long - to avoid the formation of lumps!Porridge should be thick and wholesome, not thin like gruel. It has remarkable properties for preventing hunger. Today it isoften eaten for breakfast, with the addition of milk, and a small plate keeps you feeling full until lunchtime.Traditionally crofters in the Highlands of Scotland would make a large pot of porridge at the beginning of the week. Once al-lowed to cool, it would be cut into slices, and the crofter would places a slice in his pocket eack day for lunch.Porridge must be cooked with salt to obtain the correct flavour. Those eating porridge outside Scotland have been know tocook it without salt and indeed eat it with sugar or even syrup, which is a habit which would turn the stomach of any Scotsman(or Scots-woman).
  13. 13. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolHaggisHaggis is perhaps the best known Scottish delicacy, and it is wonderful stuff, with a rich flavour, although those partaking forthe first time are often put off when they hear what it is made of...Haggis is made from sheeps offal (or pluck). The windpipe, lungs, heart and liver of the sheep are boiled and then minced.This is mixed with beef suet and lightly toasted oatmeal. This mixture is placed inside the sheeps stomach, which is sewnclosed. The resulting haggis is traditionally cooked by further boiling (for up to three hours) although the part-cooked haggiscan be cooked in the oven which prevents the risk of bursting and spoiling.MacSweens also make a vegetarian "haggis", which is actually quite tasty, even though the only ingredient it has in commonwith the real thing is the oatmeal! For more information on haggis:Short Bread ReciptIngredients:6oz Plain flour4oz Soft butter2oz caster (granulated) sugar1 oz cornflour (cornstarch)Method:Mix the butter and sugar together (preferably with a wooden spoon) until it is pale and creamy. Sieve both the flourand the cornflour into the bowl and mix well. Put a small amount of flour on your working surface and place thedough on this. Shake a little flour on top and roll out about quarter inch thick. Prick with a fork and cut into roundswith a cutter or, if you want one large shortbread round, pinch the edges with thumb and finger all round.Use a palette knife to lift the shortbread onto an oiled baking tray and bake for 25 minutes in a pre-heated oven at325F/170C/Gas Mark 3. If the biscuits are ready, they will be pale brown and crisp; if not, return to the oven for 5 or10 minutes. Shake a small amount of caster/granulated sugar on the top of the shortbread immediately after theyhave been removed from the oven. Use a palette knife to move them to a cooling rack and store in an airtight tinonce they are cold.
  14. 14. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High School To a Mouse - A Poem by Robert Burns (Written by Burns after he had turned over the nest of a tiny field mouse with his plough. Burns was a farmer and farmers are generally far too busy to be concerned with the health of mice. This poem is another illustration of Robert Burns tolerance to all creatures and his innate humanity.) Wee, sleekit, cowran, timrous beastie, O, what panics in thy breastie! Thou need na start awa sae hasty, Wi bickering brattle! I wad be laith to rin an chase thee, Wi murdring pattle! Im truly sorry Mans dominion Has broken Natures social union, An justifies that ill opinion, Which makes thee startle, At me, thy poor, earth-born companion, An fellow-mortal! I doubt na, whyles, but thou may thieve; What then? poor beastie, thou maun live! A daimen-icker in a thrave S a sma request: Ill get a blessin wi the lave, An never misst! Thy wee-bit housie, too, in ruin! Its silly was the wins are strewin! An naething, now, to big a new ane, O foggage green! An bleak Decembers winds ensuin, Baith snell an keen! Thou saw the fields laid bare an wast, An weary Winter comin fast, An cozie here, beneath the blast, Thou thought to dwell, Till crash! the cruel coulter past Out thro thy cell. That wee-bit heap o leaves an stibble, Has cost thee monie a weary nibble! Now thous turnd out, for a thy trouble, But house or hald. To thole the Winters sleety dribble, An cranreuch cauld! But Mousie, thou are no thy-lane, In proving foresight may be vain: The best laid schemes o Mice an Men, Gang aft agley, An leae us nought but grief an pain, For promisd joy! Still, thou art blest, compard wi me! The present only toucheth thee: But Och! I backward cast my ee, On prospects drear! An forward, tho I canna see, I guess an fear!

  19. 19. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolSection 2Comenius Day Overview1st May 2009On Comenius day the pupils in S1 and S2 participated in an educationaland fun-packed day.The day was split into 3 sections and they were -· Healthy Eating· Fitness· WellbeingThe event was organised and presented by Pupils, Staff, NHS Nurses,Chefs and people from the local community. We all worked together inmaking it a great day.The usual school timetable was altered into 6 Comenius workshops eachlasting 50 minutes. Over 600 S1 and S2 pupils took part in the events.These events were also attended by staff.The outcomes of the day have been shared with all pupils and staff in Bal-wearie High school. This day has also been recognised as a great successby the local Council.
  20. 20. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High School This section of the Comenius day was run in the style of work- shops. It focused on four different areas of psychological health. Stress Self Harm Self Esteem Relaxation The following pages will show what we did on Comenius day and the days that followed.
  21. 21. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High School Stress-IntroductionThis area of the Healthy Minds section on Comenius day was all about Stress. Weran a workshop which was shown to all of 1st and 2nd year pupils which was allabout stress.Our workshop aims were to:· Explain the definition of stress.· The causes of stress .· The symptoms that can emerge from long periods of stress.· Give an understanding of how stress can affect us physically and mentally.Stress-DefinitionDuring this section we explained to everyone the definition of stress. We deviseda short paragraph to underline our meaning.We hear about stress all the time. At home, at school and even on TV. Peoplesing about stress, it s a natural part of our human lives. Stress is not all bad.There is good stress and bad stress. Good being that feeling that helps youget things done like a deadline for schoolwork. Bad taking the form of seriousthings like bullying, bereavements and divorce.Stress is there whether we like it or not but it is our job to define the good from thebad and control it as best we can.Stress-CausesStress can be started by a large number of things. During our workshop we high-lighted some of the reasons why people get stressed out by splitting the class intogroups and giving them each a set of stress cards . They then had to sort thesecards into the most and least stressful causes. These included,SchoolGrowing upDivorceBereavementsPublic SpeakingPeer PressureThese were seen as the biggest stressers while things like holidays and moneywere generally thought of as not too stressful. All of the classes seemed to thinkthat the stressers related to home, family and school were more stressful thansports competitions and performances.
  22. 22. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolStress-SymptomsThere are many symptoms that can arise from being exposed to frequent and longperiods of stress. These symptoms can be both physical and mental. They can alsorange from minor differences in your mood, to serious ailments including self harmand eating disorders.For this part of the workshop we handed out more stress cards . These had somesymptoms of stress on them and this time the groups had to sort them into the mostand least serious symptoms.These included mental problems such as:AngerAggressionDepressionLosing sense of humourBottling things up.And physical problems such as:AnxietyIncreased heart rate and/or blood pressureSleeplessnessSweatingSickness/dizzinessLack of appetiteTense musclesFrom these symptoms we can see that our bodies let us know in a number of wayswhen we are stressed, both mentally and physically. Some of these changes canhappen without you noticing and we should pay attention to ourselves and ask aparent or friend if they have noticed any change in our behaviour. This simplemethod can really help to win the war against stress related problems.
  23. 23. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolStress-SummaryBy reading this Stress section of our Comenius Manual you can learn how we allfeel and behave towards physical and mental stress, what can cause us to becomestressed and how to find good ways of coping with stress as well as improving ouremotional and physical wellbeing. It s all about recognising when we are stressedand how we can deal with it in a productive and positive way. Remember, everyone is an individual. Be kind to yourself, take care of you.
  24. 24. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High School Self - Harm Self harm is a deliberate injury inflicted by a person upon their body without the suicidal intent. The self-harm workshop is to raze awareness of what self-harm actu- ally is and so that people know where to seize help. The first task that we did on Comenius day was all about the typical behaviours of self-harm. So we gave the pupils of Balwearie High School a set of the most common typical behaviours cards. And what all the cards and then put them into a line of the most serious at the top and the least serious at the bottom. Then we discussed what all the groups had. The next task that we did was all about the reasons why people self- harm. So we gave them another set of cards with the reasons. And they needed to put them into these 3 groups : *professional help *friends and family *teacher - guidance and teacher Then we discussed what all the groups had done!
  25. 25. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolSelf EsteemThe workshop self Esteem raised awareness about selfconfidence and gave tips that would help you be more confident.In the event the presenter talked to people about what they thought self-Esteem was. (self-esteem is a way a person feels about themselves. Aperson with high/positive self-esteem generally feels good about them-selves and feels they have a lot to offer).Everyone in the group joined in on the discussion and answered.After this discussion, we started playing with the Self-Esteem ball,which had different statements on it. This was where everyone was in acircle and we through the ball to each other. When someone caught theball, where ever their left thumb landed, they read out the statement. Forexample the colour . Looks good on me and they had to put acolour in the blank space. We all had a turn!Then we did the Self-Esteem jug. This was a jug that we each put astatement in. It was nice hearing people saying nice things about themselves. Once the jug was full we read out some of thestatements and hoped that when they were sayingnegative things about themselves. They Rememberedthe good things they said previously. And helped peopleto think more positively about themselves
  26. 26. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolComenius Healthy Minds Relaxation Relaxation plays a vital part in having a healthy mind. Our aim of the relaxation workshop was to raise awareness about relaxation, to discuss relaxation techniques and to explain how important relaxation is and how it can help. What is relaxation? When this question was asked many of the participants answered with techniques but there are also many other definitions of relaxation. One of these being, rest: freedom from work, strain or responsibility. People enjoy listening to music, taking hot baths and sometimes just reading. People all over the world relax in their own different ways because relaxation is anything that makes you forget about your troubles and feel happy. How to Relax. The first activity was to involve the pupils in a first hand try at relaxing. Soft music from a relaxation C.D was playing in the background and the pupils lay in a space on the ground. We read through a small passage about breathing techniques and how important it is to use your lungs fully, then through a relaxation script which most of the pupils enjoyed. After the script was read the pupils had a minute to just listen to the soft music. The scripts and most other techniques are developed to help us cope with stress, worry and anxiety. For the second and final activity in the workshop was to ask the pupils how they personally relaxed. Some people found the task easy and others didnt. It may seem simple but many people dont actually now how they relax. Once everyone had thought of how they relaxed they wrote down their technique and the cards were used in a display in the school.
  27. 27. Comenius Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Balwearie High SchoolRelaxation SummaryThere are many common ways that people relax and only a few of these are listen-ing to music, reading, sleeping, sitting on a beach or playing with a pet. All relaxa-tion techniques follow the same simple framework which is to temporarily distract orchange the way we think about stress. It is important to remember that relaxationcan help you. We highlighted that relaxation doesnt just reduce stress levels butimproves overall health. Burying yourself in work and not giving yourself enoughalone time can damage your health. It is important to take at least ten minutes aday to unwind in your own personal way.Whichever relaxation method you use whether it is an hour long yoga class or asimple ten minute exercise you benefit in many ways such as you feel better on theinside and on the out.
