Confidence In All We Do

To achieve our school values of Kindness, Courage, Integrity, and Adventure at the British School Yangon (BSY), we need to instil a sense of confidence in all we do as a community. 

Supporting and enabling confident individuals is a task we take very seriously. Our community is a diverse blend of many cultures and beliefs, and having the confidence to share these unique values and qualities in a safe and secure environment is something we work hard to promote

 “With the realisation of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world”. Dalai Lama

Our school practices confidence through a myriad of opportunities, such as being a member of the School Council, working with local charities, connecting with global peers and taking part in extracurricular activities that encourage participation, commitment, and a sense of involvement with the whole school community. This starts in Early Years and Primary, where students are encouraged to develop confidence through creativity and communication. 

“Our school encourages us to do things we wouldn’t normally do by ourselves. They help us develop skills such as public speaking, and build our confidence when in new situations.”   Year 6 pupil

Being part of Nord Anglia Education also opens up our students to opportunities and learning practices that will boost confidence. Whether it’s giving them the confidence to invent things for the future through STEAM initiatives with MIT, or the conviction to take part in expeditions in new cultures, NAE’s approach encourages students to take steps beyond their comfort zone. 

 

At BSY we want to instil confidence in the whole community, and not just the students. Teachers and parents are powerful role models and if they are confident, it has an impact on the children who learn by example. It is empowering for students to see their peers, teachers and parents trying new activities, getting involved and sharing successes.

 

Our success as a school is largely down to our world-class teachers and we are committed to supporting them inside and outside of the classroom. As well as providing professional development and training opportunities, we encourage them to have the confidence to come up with new ideas and challenge outdated ways of working.

Parents are also a vital part of our school community, and it is important that all of our families feel welcome and confident to speak up, and get involved in school life. 

“As a new parent, I have struggled to meet new friends. I was invited to join the Parent Social Group at BSY and this has enabled me to confidently mix with the school community and volunteer for a number of exciting events. I feel a sense of belonging that I was missing before.”

BSY Parent

Confidence creates a strong foundation for success, and most confident people live by strong values. That is why we strive on a daily basis to live by our school values of Kindness, Integrity, Courage and Adventure.
