Upcoming Workshop!

 

As educators, we might not agree with every initiative that comes down the pipe, but we all want our students to be healthy and happy. In an ideal world, this would mean that every school would have a stand-alone health and wellness program. However, in most international schools, this still isn’t the case. Wellness is being taught, but it’s happening in pockets throughout the school- PE, advisory, counselor talks, core classes- and often comes down to the passion of certain individuals in the community.

While this approach can work, it’s often leads to holes in student learning. During this two-day workshop, participants will learn a way to structure a wellness scope & sequence for any school that can help identify those holes. And regardless of your current role, you’ll leave with a toolkit of ready-to-go resources that can be used- and shared!- to help equip students with the health literacy skills they’ll need for life.
