PSHE

PSHE is an important area of the NAIS Manila curriculum that helps children grow and develop as individuals and as members of families and communities. 

Through PSHE, pupils will have the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.

Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum. As part of the PSHE curriculum, pupils at NAIS Manila take part in a number of charity initiatives. 

They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning. 

This year we welcome two new friends to NAIS Manila- Zippy and Apple.

Over the coming year, parents and carers may hear about these creatures as Years 1 to 4 participate in our new PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) Curriculum. 

Zippy's Friends is a program designed to help your child with their personal, social and emotional wellbeing. It was designed by the organisation Partnership for Children, alongside other educators. Over two decades it has been taught in over 30 countries. 

Students will participate in 24 sessions throughout the year, covering the following topics:

  • Feelings
  • Communication
  • Friendship
  • Conflict
  • Change
  • Loss
  • Moving Forward

Each concept will be approached in a child-friendly way through stories, role-play and games.

Years 1 and 2 (KS1) will follow the tales of Zippy, the stick insect, and his owner Tig. While Years 3 and 4 will focus on Apple, the pet hamster.

While this curriculum only runs for one year, the children will be equipped with lifelong skills to take with them throughout their school career, and beyond.

The aim of these programs is to enable pupils to be better able, to identify different feelings, as well as suggest strategies for coping with these. If taught these skills early on, they are far better equipped to handle life’s potential ups and downs. 

At certain points throughout the year, students may ask for family members to assist with Home Activities. While these are optional, they will provide an invaluable opportunity to engage in dialogue with your child about their feelings and other important issues. 

Should you need any more information do take a look at the Partnership for Children website.
