Discovering Positive Education - Weekly Wellbeing

I started the week by attending a course on “Discovering Positive Education” in Singapore facilitated by the Institute of Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School in Australia.

It was fantastic to work with a world-leading organisation in the field of positive education. It was also an opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues from leading schools in Hong Kong, Singapore and Jakarta on the undoubted benefits of embedding an explicit wellbeing curriculum and the positive impacts this can have on academic outcomes as well as general wellbeing. 

It was great to see so many parents at the Key Stage 4 Open Day and have the opportunity to outline the Wellbeing curriculum programme for Year 10 and Year 11 this year as they begin or continue on their IGCSE journey. The Wellbeing curriculum was officially launched to Year 11 at an assembly on Thursday.

We continued our ongoing training programme with staff on Thursday as the Year 9 Wellbeing team gave up part of their lunchtime to participate in a training session facilitated by Meera Chetty, our School Counsellor. The session outlined the themes behind the upcoming “Journey of Life” series of lessons and was an opportunity to share best practice and teaching ideas. It was great to see staff collaborating and ensuring a culture of continuous improvement is already embedded in our new Wellbeing curriculum.

This week, our Year 11 students completed their series of sessions facilitated by the College University and Guidance team. The presentations are available via the Year 11 student's Wellbeing page and I would encourage you to speak to your son or daughter should you wish to have a look. Our Year 8 students focused on the results of their Character Strength questionnaires and considered what the world would look and feel like if no one was allowed to action their strengths. It is great to see so many of our Year 7 students engaging so positively in the “Take Home Tasks” they are provided should they wish to complete them and I am already seeing evidence of some very interesting home discussions.

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 Form Time. Should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me.
