HABL What is HABL? Part of ISB's Mission Statement is to lead healthy, active and balanced lives. ISB works to inspire students to be well rounded and engage in healthy and sustainable lifestyle choices. Our class had a discussion about this and how this fits into home learning. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to help with some non-traditional forms of home learning. (see below for ideas)
ISB Mission Statement:
Through outstanding teaching in a nurturing environment, ISB inspires students to:
- achieve their academic potential
- be passionate, reflective learners
- become caring global citizens
- lead healthy, active and balanced lives
15 minutes of any HABL activity should happen on Tuesday and Thursday nights. It's OK if your busy lives do not permit this, but it's something ISB values and promotes for all students. Your family's values and routines are the most important though.
