Rejuvenating the Mind, Body and Soul

02 November 2017

School Principal Sarah Osborne-James believes that travel and distance from daily routines can make us more effective and helps the mind, body and soul rejuvenate; exactly what this half-term break helped us do.

Children also need a break from routine, a break from busy school timetables and after school schedules. We do not stop learning; school holidays are the perfect opportunity to put learning into context and application but also a time to learn and develop (often without realising) so many different skills, concepts and attitudes.

Meaningful travel opportunities can teach us many things:

  1. Differences and similarities – travel can teach us about people and culture. Developing compassion, an understanding of diversity and tolerance.
  2. Open-minded – to find out there is more than one way of solving a problem or approaching different situations. This can help develop empathy and seeing different perspectives.
  3. Inspiration – You need to be removed from your routine and daily environment in order to see things differently.
  4. Global mind-set – Through hands on experiences we can truly understand what it means to be a global citizen.
  5. Appreciation of home – Returning home and sleeping in your own bed at the end of a holiday is a fabulous feeling. For our children who are often third culture kids (TCKs) the concept of home can be contentious. Returning home after travel helps us appreciate what we have and will keep us grounded.

Having a half-term break is good for us and our children. Research backs this up; recent studies suggest that traveling actually sparks new synapses and revitalises brain activity. I hope you were all able to take full advantage of the half-term break and have returned with your mind, body and soul rejuvenated, ready for the next half-term ahead!
