How can we support our children?
Posted 04/06/2016 08:14AM

When our children come to school, they are faced with many changes one of which is adapting to a society where each member has a different background, different home values and rules and diverse personal opinions. At IC, we plan for engagements to create common essential agreements for all situations and discuss arising conflicts between our children. Director, teachers and the student support team address these matters through assemblies, daily classroom life and an initiative that started last year to organize advisory mini lessons that explore concepts such as friendship, play, dealing with conflicts… Through her session with grade 3/CE2 students, Student Support team member at IC Ain Aar Manal Harfouche, discussed respect dynamics, both physical and emotional between children through open discussions, role play, as well as oral and written activities.  She engaged the children in a reflection on the difference between friends and classmates and how respect is key in human relationships.
