This session's purpose was to present the Well-Being programme at BISS Puxi and the coaching conversations programmes available for parents.
Sarah Reynolds, EAL Primary School Coordinator and also Well-Being and Positive Education Coordinator explained how BISS Puxi works with the teaching staff, students and with the larger teaching community of Nord Anglia Education, which continues to develop Well-Being and Positive Education.
Parents were then introduced to the Coaching Conversations programmes for Term 1. Two groups will start their first session on Friday 30 September. This is when their coaching jorney will officially launch.
Beyond aiming at helping parents to build Mental Toughness and create Positive relationships with others, attending coaching conversations is also great way to practice the Five Ways to Wellbeing:
- Connect… With other parents attending the programme, with family, friends, neighbours with whom you’ll share your experience. Building these connections will support and enrich you everyday.
- Be active… Step outside, walk or cycle to the school to attend. Exercising makes you feel good.
- Keep learning…Try something new or enhance your knowledge. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun.
- Take notice…Be curious, about you and the others. About the world around you. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.
- Give… Look out, as well as in. Share your experience. Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.
Lastly, we kindly invite you to read the Letter from America, from Sue Smith, and learn this week about Connecting – Investing in a smile and the Ripple Effect.
Keep learning, Keep Progressing, Be Well!
