Grade 12 Resilience Training Programme

On January 18 and 19 Prem Grade 12 students went to Payap University to participate in a Resilience Training Programme developed by the Head of Boarding, the College and Careers Counsellor, School Counsellor and the Diploma Programme Coordinator. The students spent the two days living on the university campus in dorm rooms and also had the opportunity to visit a variety of campus locations including lecture halls. 

The programme focused on information and skills that will help the students in the transition from high school to university and beyond.  Sessions included information about self-esteem, being a Third Culture Kid, meditation, aikido, finances, family and friendships, living in university  and drugs and alcohol.  One new activity that was added this year was a cooking lesson by A. Luke, who heads the Hospitality Management programme and one of his students.  As a follow up to this on the last day, the students received a cookbook with recipes contributed by their teachers to help them prepare quick and nutritious meals during their university experience.

The students also considered personal safety issues connected to life on campus, within their new communities, technology usage, and personal relationships.  The final activity required the students to look five years into the future  and consider where they will find themselves professionally, financially, and personally.  The responses were varied for this large group of Grade 12s, and showed how diverse their future goals and plans really are.

The focus and communication during the two days was excellent, and our students left the experience with a lot to consider regarding the goals they have for themselves and how to attain them in the future.
