Between last week and this week Lower and Upper Primary students attended special PSHE assemblies, run by our Counsellor Miss Carolina.
For students in Reception 1 to Year 1 Miss Carolina did a presentation on Sharing (including taking turns, playing together and choosing a different toy/activity in case of disagreement with other students), and Taking Responsibility (being honest and cooperative, following rules and not blaming others).
Older students from Year 3 to Year 6 attended a presentation on how to get rid of Bad Habits, from nervous ticks that become worse when feeling anxious or upset, to repetitive behaviours that may annoy other people around us. Some examples are nail biting, finger sucking, sneezing or coughing without covering their mouth.
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is part of our Primary curriculum; it is a programme of learning through which children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society; it is delivered through homeroom teachers on a daily basis and through special assemblies run by the counsellor that target specific topics.
