WELLBEING AT CIS
Student well-being is an integral part of student life at CIS because it profoundly impacts students' overall development, academic achievement, and long-term success. Prioritizing student well-being creates a positive and supportive learning environment where students feel safe, valued, and empowered to reach their full potential.
When student well-being is prioritized, it promotes positive mental health, resilience, and emotional regulation. This, in turn, leads to improved concentration, engagement, and academic performance. Students who feel emotionally and physically supported are more likely to take risks, explore new ideas, and actively participate in their learning.
Furthermore, a focus on student well-being nurtures the development of crucial life skills, such as empathy, communication, problem-solving, and self-care. These skills are essential for students to thrive academically, build healthy relationships, and navigate challenges in their personal and professional lives.
Ultimately, prioritizing student well-being contributes to creating a school culture that values the holistic growth of each student, fostering their happiness, confidence, and lifelong well-being.
CIS supports the wellbeing of all our students through key pillars of what we feel drive positive student wellbeing. The CIS wellbeing team is comprised of CIS leadership members, our Wellbeing Coordinator, teachers, parent members and work with the CIS Student Council to ensure all stakeholders are working collaboratively to drive our pillars of wellbeing through the school community. These pillars include:
Safe and Secure: Ensure that your child feels safe at school, both physically and emotionally. Talk to them about any concerns they may have and work with the school to address them.
Healthy Body: Making sure your child eats nutritious food, gets enough exercise, and gets sufficient sleep are crucial for their physical health and energy levels.
Happy Mind: Your child's emotional well-being is essential. Help them express their feelings, cope with stress, and build resilience to face challenges.
Friends and Connections: Encourage your child to make friends and build positive relationships with their peers and teachers. Feeling connected to others fosters a sense of belonging and support.
Finding Purpose: Help your child discover their interests and passions. When they feel engaged in their learning and activities, it boosts their motivation and happiness.
Balanced Life: Teach your child the importance of managing their time wisely. A balanced schedule that includes time for studies, hobbies, and relaxation is crucial for their well-being.
By understanding and supporting these key elements, you can contribute to your child's overall well-being and success in school and life. Remember to communicate with your child regularly and be there for them when they need your guidance and support
