SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING & MINDFULNESS
With Mindfulness, students learn to give themselves the breathing room they require to take in what’s happening in and around them, see it more clearly through a positive lens, and react more intentionally. By being curious about, and attending to, present moment experiences; students learn about their reactions, patterns, and themselves. They begin to understand that they have a choice and can take space to respond rather than react to everyday stresses. Mindfulness also supports students in developing self-compassion and compassion for others.
Ultimately, we aspire to cultivate a learning environment where our entire community is supported in their positive emotional development, critical thinking, resilience, and overall well-being. UWC Thailand International School incorporates SEL and Mindfulness into the school day in a variety of ways.
