Our Social & Emotional Well-Being Drive for 2019 in schools in the Western Cape
FOUNDATIONS FOR LIFE · THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2019
The missing piece in the educational puzzle. Foundations for Life is challenging IQ to meet EQ within the school system. Social and emotional well-being is a process through which children and adults learn a specific set of social and emotional skills needed for success in school and life. These skills are self-awareness , self-management, social-awareness, relationship-skills, goal-directed behaviour, personal-responsibility, decision-making and optimistic-thinking. We believe that improved relationships and communication skills positively impact the classroom environment. Our programmes teach children and adults important skills to begin to understand and effectively manage the way they think, feel and behave.
Short term benefits: increased self-esteem, compassion and empathy towards others, increased self-control, improved behaviour, reduced anxiety and emotional outbursts, positive attitude towards tasks and an overall increase in academic performance.
