Wellbeing Curriculum - BIS HCMC
“What are three things I am thankful for?”

This was one of the starter questions posed during the Wellbeing introductory assemblies this week at the Secondary Campus. The answers provided were unanimous across all year groups and genuinely heartening; parents, friends and being a student at BIS. 

Building on this fantastically positive opening and the presentation from Dr Miguel on ‘Teenage Mental Health’, this week’s focus was exploring what it means to experience good wellbeing; building the capacity to thrive and flourish, whilst developing resilience and the ability to ‘bounce back’ during times of adversity.  As well as exploring the six elements of wellbeing and the foundations of the new curriculum; positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, accomplishment and health, we also examined the positive correlation between strong academic outcomes and good wellbeing.

The level of engagement amongst students and the response to the new Wellbeing curriculum has been hugely positive and over the next few weeks, we look forward to exploring some of the themes introduced this week in much greater detail.
