Discover Yourself!

We've tackled a lot of interesting topics during the past semester with a concentration on self-discovery!

HAPPINESS!

Coming in the time of Eid, this theme helped open the eyes of our students to the fact that one feels happy when s/he makes others happy! What goes around comes around.


We learnt that happiness multiplies when shared and that it could come in many forms; family, friends, money, trips, smiles.. etc.


A group helped in wrapping the gifts for “Operation Smile” project, the other group made EID cards for random people at school (matrons, cleaners, .. etc.)

SELF ACCEPTANCE

We learnt that we all do mistakes, we have some in common and some aren’t, We don’t judge others according to their mistakes, hate the action don’t hate the person.


We all shared some of our mistakes and saw that most of us one day did the same mistake though we are not bad people.


We learnt that it’s how you deal with your mistake that matters!


*Activity - Walking across the room:

We all lined up and a situation was mentioned "if you have ever claimed that you have something that you didn't have for real, walk across the room". Whoever did that before, including us, the teachers!, would walk across the room and come back.


The situations differed from trivial ones like; you've ever ran to the bathroom because you really needed to go, to some more specific to the problems that we face with our kids like; you've ever told someone you've prayed while you really haven't.


A discussion followed about how we all do mistakes and there is no need to judge then how to fix them, which is the part that actually matters.

Don’t judge others because they sin differently.

BULLYING !

CE team made a small skit for G3 assembly to demonstrate how bullying could be, how sometimes we don’t see what we really did and how we made others feel. We shared small booklets for the victims and for the ones who made the action on how to deal with the situation.


Song: Bully free zone

BULLY-FREE ZONE! (Anti-bullying song for kids!)

Respect

We learnt that we have different feelings towards different actions, we have to respect our own feelings and others’ feelings too.
