At Belvedere International School (BIS), we would like parents to be fully aware of what we are doing to support students’ Wellbeing, why we are doing this and what can be done at home in order to bring maximum benefit to our students. This is one element of our commitment to incorporate aspects of positive psychology within our wider curriculum so we are thoroughly preparing our students for successful and purposeful futures, whatever they choose to do with their lives.
There is no shortage of relevant issues we wish to share with you so you are better informed about what we are doing to develop ‘life skills’ such as confidence, character, kindness, compassion and resilience at BIS. In doing so I hope you can better see how we are providing a foundation which will help your child to flourish and also inform you on things that can be done at home to help embed these life skills in your child.
Growing up in the modern & digital world is not easy and the pressures on young people today are manifold and complex. There are, however, tremendous opportunities available to those who are prepared for the challenges ahead: who look to learn new things, who build positive relationships, who make positive contributions to the lives of others and the environment; who lead healthy lives, who can express feelings and emotions, who celebrate their own successes and the successes of others.
At BIS we recognise we are educating leaders of the future and all of the above are required if they are to lead with distinction and be happy in the process. All of this will be made easier if the messages from BIS and from home are consistent and clear in terms of establishing this foundation for future flourishing.
