Wellbeing 19. The Purpose of Friendship

As our friendship wellbeing is coming to an end, we discussed the purpose of friendship.

Firstly: Networking

Secondly: Reassurance

Thirdly: Fun

Fourthly: Clarifying our Minds

Fifthly: Holding on to the past

the list goes on and on…

As we go on with our lives, friends are the ones who are by our side.

Here is an interesting video of in-depth discussion about the purpose of friendship:

Amazing Laetitia and her new friendship

Recently, Laetitia has been helping out in old portena to take care of the two little ones, Karina and Elsa. She made so much effort to get them ready for bed and play with them during social hours. The girls and Laetitia enjoy each other’s company very much.

Friendship isn’t about age or nationality, as long as you genuinely put in your time and energy, it will grow beautifully.

 




Week 18. Wellbeing Session with Ms.Jody

Tonight, Ms.Jody came to LY7 to check how are things going after our recent room change. All the girls have shown their satisfaction with our current rooming arrangement which is extremely important to our wellbeing.

Ms.Jody showed us a  picture of a flock of birds flying in the sky, and she explained why the birds flock.  It improves a bird’s chance of survival against predators because a large group of birds is stronger and better protected and with many eyes, the flock is far more likely to spot a would-be marauder. Also, the predator will find it harder to concentrate on a single victim, increasing the individual member of the flock’s chance of survival. Flocking also enables birds to fly further using less energy because when the strong leader bird flaps its wings it creates uplift for the birds behind. Living in the same house is just like flocking, in order to fly farther, faster and safer, we need to work as a team, support each other uplift each other.
