Stay Safe Topic – Cannabis

During this week’s well-being time, alongside our new ‘stay safe’ topics that we will be delivering to our students, we discussed the important topic of Cannabis use and its effects. First of all, it was important for us to discuss with the boys what they already knew about this topic?

We gathered their perceptions and feelings relating to the effects of Cannabis and went onto to separate the facts from the theories.

We have broken this particular topic into 4 main parts; mental health, brain development, addiction and ‘gateway drugs’.

This week, we explored the impact cannabis use has on our mental health. Please find some more information on the slides below.

The session was very interactive and we are thrilled with the knowledge, the maturity and interest the boys showed throughout the presentation.

Ski day

John loves skiing and he doesn’t miss an opportunity to do so. Grand Massif, near Cluses in France was the spot chosen for today’s excursion. The group reported a lovely site and a pleasant winter sun during their adventures in the slopes.

Next one, this coming Saturday.

Coronavirus… Safe and healthy choices

It’s everywhere on the news and we are not ignoring it. Coronavirus is a global matter where each and every one of us plays a part in preventing it and protecting ourselves and the others.

With this video, we could illustrate to the boys, how a safe choice can go a long way in terms of helping to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Not only we are helping ourselves but also we are taking responsibility towards the others. And if everybody does the same, certainly we could help to sort out the situation.

Here is a great example of how simple things, can possibly help on a global scale

The second and final ski weekend

This weekend saw the second, and final, mountain weekend of the year to Crans Montana. All of our boys had a brilliant time. They enjoyed skiing, snowboarding, trampolining, bowling, skating as well as an excursion to Sion to visit the escape room. Here are some photos. We hope to be able to share more in the coming days………

Safe and Responsible choices

It is always a subject that opens a lot of debate and we are glad we are now discussing this in our Well Being periods.

Today, we have brainstormed on 4 main concerns:

1- What is a safe and responsible choice?

2-Do we always make the best choices?

3-What if we don’t?

4-What stops us from making them?

As usual, a nice little debate and exchange took place and it was interesting to see the word “pressure” being mentioned by many of the older boys… we also heard “laziness”, “consequences”, “prevention” and “regret”.

We were curious to see how the older ones tend to relate immediately with their own experiences, as they project themselves into adulthood. We are positive this topic is possibly one of the most exciting ones we are going to have as there are lots of room for reflexion and exchange.

More to come, next week 😉
