Westbourne House’s sector leading programme, Learning4Life, focusses on the skills we need throughout life.
After the outbreak of Covid-19, Learning4Life sessions focussed on helping children deal with the pandemic. Lessons included alleviating the children's concerns by giving them clear, fact-checked information and giving the pupils preventative strategies to build their resilience against mental health issues and to help them develop strategies for being in isolation.
The children thought about a daily routine which may be useful for families to adopt or emulate. All the Prep School pupils were involved and the children of course came up with many versions of a structured day.
The teachers also gave tips for maintaining wellbeing in isolation.
A sense of wellbeing depends on five strands:
- Being able to use your STRENGTHS
- Being HEALTHY in body and mind
- Having a wide PERSPECTIVE on life
- Having MEANING and purpose in what you are doing
- Having strong RELATIONSHIPS
Outside of Learning4Life, pupils were also trained in using Google Classroom of which there are a few photos below.
