Mumbai, India, November 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — JBCN International School, Oshiwara encourages healthy social, emotional and behavioral development in its learners through planned mental health awareness engagements and activities.
The Enrichment Department hosted a week-long event focused on raising awareness of the importance of taking care of yourself and others. The main focus was on self-awareness and control for younger learners; for example, they discovered how to observe and artistically express their breathing patterns using ‘Controlled respiratory waves‘. The ‘Emotional color wheel‘ and ‘In my head‘ were used to teach them to understand their emotions and thoughts, while older students focused on learning the beneficial effects of simple exercises and ‘Statements‘.
While anti-bullying themes are a regular feature of scheduled enrichment department sessions, an inter-house anti-bullying poster contest helped middle school students articulate their thoughts and feelings. on the subject significantly. The learners created posters and each house explained what their poster was about. Some groups expressed their thoughts through dance and music, and others through drama. The winning house, Super Samurais, worked together to present a short skit to showcase their thoughts on the long-term effects of bullying. They also gave their peers advice on how to confront bullies and work to build trust and friendship.
Finally, in association with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, the Enrichment department organized a workshop for the parent community on positive parenting: strengthening the parent-child bond with a focus on understanding social, mental and and physique of children. The workshop helped parents explore the dynamics of parent-child relationships and understand different parenting styles.
