Health and Wellbeing Training


Jennifer Blackman
MYP PHE Teacher

During the month of October, the Middle School Advisors received training in using health, well-being, and social-emotional resources, from the internationally acclaimed Health Consultant, Amy Smith. The Middle School Advisors found the resources from the University of California, Berkeley really insightful and useful to use with the Students of Branksome Hall Asia. They tried out new teaching and learning strategies and discussed the strengths and challenges of the New Extended Advisory Program.

Advisors used this professional development opportunity to gain knowledge in topics such as Character Strengths, Mindfulness and gathered evidence-based research from the Greater Good website. The Advisors will now use these new resources to design their own Grade Level Unit, for the students to explore in Extended Advisory  in 2022.
