Role Models

Today at the house we sat and spoke about Role Models.
The students shared who they look up to and why. Most of the students consider their father the best role model. They also mentioned public figures, students of the community, the director of Boarding and other members of the family such as the grandma.

We also discussed about the students being a role model for their younger siblings or other students in the community.

Wellbeing – Sociability

Today our students worked in groups and analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of working in a group and individually.

They also explained what kind of skills we need and develop in both of the circumstances.

We also spoke about the different stages of how to improve our social skills (Inner-self, outer-self, one on one on one & group interaction). We closed the session with 10 minutes of deep breathing and relaxation.

About Friendships.

Louis Dégallier students met today to speak about Friendships, what it means for each of us and what we consider is essential in a friendship relationship.

We also spoke about the Purpose of Friendship and discussed about the 4 components suggested on the video of the link: Networking, Reassurance, Fun & Clarifying our Minds.

Joy of Football, Flamengo Campeão!

Saturday Evening is synonym of football in Latin America! And this evening Thiago and I could witness how his team became champion of the Copa Libertadores (Champions League equivalent in south america)

Lots of nerves and tension watching the final with our lovely Brazilian student. We are so happy to share this moments with him. Bora Flamengo!

I come from…

On the last Well- Being Session, our students prepared a short presentation about the countries and cities they come from and they grew up in.

It was a very interesting and enriching experience for all the students and house parents.

They spoke not only about geography and sightseeing but about culture, leisure and gastronomy.

Many questions came up from the audience.

It was a very productive session where all of us learnt many new things about Russia, Ukraine, China, Hong Kong, Ireland, Brasil, Japan and Ecuador.
