Self Reflection - 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 BIS HCMC.

Weekly Wellbeing - BIS HCMC
Self-reflection is a humbling process. It is essential to find out why you think, say, and do certain things….then better yourself.

During our busy lives, it is wonderful to find the time in which to reflect. This week in Wellbeing, the focus was on creating that opportunity, time and safe space to enable our students to reflect on their personal experiences and observations throughout the last term. Reflection is what gives our brains the opportunity to pause amidst the chaos and to create a sense of meaning in our lives. Self-reflection heightens our self-awareness, improves our self-esteem and self-confidence and allows us to see things from a different angle. With a backdrop of a (Youtube) burning coal fire and the dulcet tones of Michael Buble singing well known Christmas songs, students across all year groups completed a self-reflection survey and were encouraged to think about their own personal wellbeing. They were also asked to complete a short questionnaire to give their thoughts on the new Wellbeing Curriculum and I look forward to sharing the results with you after the holiday.

We welcomed Father John from Mai Tam House of Hope to speak to our Year 9 students in the final ‘Understanding Others’ series of lessons. Mai Tam House of Hope is a home and centre for HIV/AIDS positive children and provides shelter, medicine, medical care and education for its residents. I was very proud of the Year 9s who showed great respect throughout the talk and posed intelligent and mature questions to Father John at the end. I look forward to receiving some fabulous entries to our poster competition in collaboration with Family Medical Practice (closing date 20 January 2020) which focuses on reducing the stigma and discrimination encountered by HIV/AIDs positive people.  

I hope you have had an opportunity to discuss the Wellbeing curriculum with your son or daughter this term and have gained a greater understanding of the work they are doing during lessons and in Tutor Time. I aim to introduce parental workshops in Term 2 and look forward to seeing many of you at those. Should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me at

I wish everyone a restful and peaceful holiday and look forward to speaking to you again in 2020.
