Yesterday evening, our grades 9 and 10 went to a wellbeing workshop organised by the boarding school and our counselor, Miss Jody. We all learned about expressing and dealing with our emotions. Then we worked in small groups and tried to solve scenarios, understand our feelings, and how to be a good listener. It was lovely to see our girls listening to each other and creating a safe space for everyone to feel welcome to share their feelings. In the pictures, you can see a drawing at the center of the table: it is the wheel of emotions, to help students find the right words for the right feeling. The students are showing with their hands how ‘full’ is their emotional jar.
