Children have been encouraged to show care and have been shown great examples through numerous assemblies whilst also taking part in circle time and discussions in class.
The students have been learning what it means to take care of possessions, those around them and themselves and have talked through different scenarios and situations that occur in real life, coming to positive conclusions that help to benefit all.
The newly installed ‘Emotional Resilience’ curriculum (rolled out for Early Years to Year 3) has shown fantastic results in improving children’s awareness and perceptions of any emotional problems or issues that might occur day-to-day. We want students to be better equipped for real life scenarios and for them to better understand their own emotions.
The Student Council have been coming up with fantastic ideas to help make the Junior Campus a better, more efficient and more fun place to learn. Already, we have seen new equipment being introduced to the playgrounds during lunchtimes and there will be new ‘Manners Banners’ mounted in the canteen to help remind our students to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to the people that serve them lunch. They came up with the fantastic idea of having the banners in English alongside Vietnamese, to improve communication and help reinforce some local language learning for the students.
On Friday, members of the Student Council will head over to the EY&I campus to present during their assembly. They aim to inspire the next generation of council members to apply to be involved in the Mini-Council, a new initiative that’s about to begin in EY&I. As a school, we want to provide more opportunities for student leadership, for students to have more responsibility and a greater sense of ownership of where they learn.
