This evening we had our weekly Well-being program where we kept working on Respecting Diversity. This time we focus our attention in how to enhance social skills development by illustrating how our words affect people. We used an apple which was hurt by words that the boys said (they dropped it after saying something mean to the apple) and then seeing its final aspect, and another apple where the boy holding it received a compliment from one of his friends and see at the end the two aspects of a hurt apple and another compliment apple to finally see how painful words can affect and impact in someone’s life.
This morning our primary boys from Concha and Champ des Bois went Lausanne to visit the Aquarium AQUATIS.
There they participated in a workshop specially organised for them. They learned a lot about the aquatic environment and the species that live on it. Afterwards they visit the aquarium where they could saw many different fishes, frogs, snakes etc… boys really enjoyed this visit .
