Pupils both here and in Kushadevi have been through a lot over the last two years, so it seemed like the perfect time to use the idea of ‘wellbeing’ to frame our conversations during this week’s Live Link.
Class 8 have been thinking about how to care for themselves and others through their HeartSmart lessons. They considered the role that Love has to play in wellbeing too and they shared some thoughts and poems on this when the two classes connected via Zoom on Wednesday. (see examples below)
It was actually a Religious Holiday in Nepal, but SK managed to get some enthusiastic pupils to pop into school to share some of the thinking they had done on wellbeing. The pupils showed off posters they had made wellbeing, which will now go up around the school (see examples below).
Our shared hope was that by talking about the importance of wellbeing we would raise the profile of this issue amongst our pupils and those in Kushadevi.
The session ended with the usual Q&A session and gave the pupils a chance to make their own connections with each other.
We were all in awe of SK’s ability to translate poems and questions with such speed, and with the quality of the English speaking of the Kushadevi pupils as they read the information on their posters.
