Oakfields Montessori School, Harwood Hall Lane, Upminster, welcomed its community to the event on Friday, September 27, which was being celebrated by schools across several countries that are also run by Cognita Schools.

As well as fun activities, children were also able to learn about topics related to health, mental health and wellbeing at different centres around the school on the day.

Stephanie Green from the school said: "Global Be Well Day was a brilliant day!

"From the morning Boxercise session with parents, children and staff, to sessions including sleep, social media, and healthy eating, to our fun-filled colour run.
