I Can! was delighted when Omnia invited its sponsored learners to participate in the company annual Health and Wellness Day, celebrated 10 October 2013. The event with its 200 employees featured goodie bags and loads of freebies. Preparations for the learners included designing promotional posters, baking cupcakes, making beaded bracelets and set up of two vending carts with smoothie stations.
Omnia arranged for a bus to transport all 40 learners to and from the Kempton Park academy to the client site, along with all the goods for the big day. Everyone was given a T-shirt with the Omnia and I Can! logos and the slogan ‘Together We Can!”. Small learner groups made strawberry and banana smoothies, served coffee and tea, and distributed bracelets, popcorn and cupcakes to promote the ‘wellness’ of the Omnia employees.
Later, the ‘fitness’ of staff and learners was tested in a tough workout session. Only few powered through. The learners then displayed their own version of ‘health and wellness’, in the form of a rhythmic dance.

On behalf of all of the I Can! staff and Omnia learners, we would like to extend our thanks for a thoroughly enjoyed Omnia Wellness Day.
