Your latest wellbeing updates from the Secondary Campus

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

“Oh, I adore to cook. It makes me feel so mindless in a worthwhile way.”

Truman Capote

Before becoming a teacher, I was very close to attending catering college to become a chef in Edinburgh, Scotland. Although I decided against following this particular career pathway, I still enjoy spending time in the kitchen. This week I took delivery of a new oven and have spent several evenings rustling up the odd creative masterpiece. As well as the opportunity to produce food which has a positive impact on my own health, the art of cooking is proven to have tangible effects on your personal wellbeing…..its PERMAH in action! It’s the perfect way to unwind, chill out and experience positive engagement in an activity that facilitates both creativity and a love of learning. There is a true sense of positive accomplishment in producing a wonderful final dish from a range of ingredients.  And the best bit? The positive emotions and positive relationships experienced as you  sit down and share your masterpiece with loved ones. 

Wellbeing in Action

Students across all year groups have clearly been having similar experiences this week as they demonstrated through their engagement in the “My Wellbeing Week in Photos” challenge. Everyone was tasked with taking a photograph a day for a full week - every picture had to show an element of PERMAH in action. It has been wonderful to see students spending time with family, engaged in their favourite hobbies, reading books, enjoying great food and having fun with friends. I hope you have had a chance to engage with your son or daughter in this challenge….and maybe even appear in some of their photographs!!

Wellbeing Wall - British International School HCMC

I was really excited this week to see the installation of two new Wellbeing themed displays - the Wellbeing Wall outside the Student Centre and the “Breaktime @ The Study” poster. In a recent survey, 96.3% of students recognised our two Wellbeing characters and these new additions further raise the profile of the wellbeing work we do at BIS. As well as increasing awareness when fully functional, the Wellbeing Wall will contain exciting information and opportunities for student engagement. As well as regular wellbeing articles which students will find interesting and thought provoking, there will be opportunities to learn what staff and other students do to experience positive wellbeing and to engage in a monthly wellbeing challenge.

I hope you have the opportunity to discuss your son or daughters experience with them and how these experiences have helped build their positive wellbeing. I look forward to seeing the students back at school soon and should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me at robert.alexander@bisvietnam.com. Thank you as always for your support with our new Wellbeing curriculum.
