"Who am I?" - Weekly Wellbeing

Welcome to the Weekly Wellbeing Blog which brings you all the latest exciting developments in the new Wellbeing Curriculum over the last seven days at the British International School Ho Chi Minh City.

Life's most defining question? And the question posed to our Year 10 students this week in the first of their Personal Wellbeing Plan series of lessons. Over the next four weeks the students will be encouraged to explore the concept of who they are, where they come from, what and who drives them, influences them, inspires them.  They will also be working towards creating their own personal wellbeing plans and identifying what they can do to to build their own sense of positive wellbeing and where they need support from home and school. I would encourage any parents of Year 10 students to have a discussion with their son or daughter about some of the questions and thoughts raised in class.

It was wonderful to attend a training session run by student representatives of the Global Goals team as they talked Wellbeing teachers and tutors of Year 7 through a series of lessons built around the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. I was hugely impressed with the maturity and passion of the students as they outlined the themes which staff will be covering over the next few weeks and their vision on what they want to achieve. As a teacher of a Year 7 Wellbeing class myself I can testify to how powerful the first lesson was and the wonderful class discussions and debates it provoked. A huge well done to the Global Goals team on their work, particularly Joseph Kim, Adira Rajesh Serena Lee, HyunSeo Ryu Soo Min Ryu, Jung Min Oh  and Ashley Lee!

The theme of our Year 11 Wellbeing lesson this week was on supporting others and how important it is to seek help when needed; whether that be from friends, family, class teachers, Form Tutors, Heads of Year or a member of our Counselling team. The key emphasis of the lesson was on the importance of seeking help early if needed and recognising that doing so shows strength, not weakness. As our Year 11 students move towards their mock exams in January and head towards the end of the year it becomes even more imperative they focus on looking after themselves and those around them - mentally, emotionally and physically.

I hope you are having an opportunity to discuss the Wellbeing curriculum with your son or daughter and gain a greater understanding of the work they are doing during lessons and in Tutor Time. Should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me at robert.alexander@bisvietnam.com
