“When the going gets tough, the tough get going” – that’s a saying we have all heard time and again. These are testing times and we are all in this together.
At Nahar International School, we believe that mental health and well-being are as important as physical well-being. A healthy mind helps develop a healthy body. We need all the resources possible to remain strong physically and mentally. It becomes even more important for us to take care of our mental health during difficult times.
With this thought and objective in mind, the Student Wellbeing Department at NIS continually works towards supporting the emotional well-being of its students and teachers, and ensuring that they engage in self-care.
Keeping this in mind, a variety of resources were created and assimilated to help students and faculty remain positively engaged and develop an optimistic affirmative outlook in these trying times. Various activities were designed for students, academic and administrative staff, and compiled into booklets, which could easily be attempted and indulged in, on a day-to-day basis. Life skills sessions were conducted online with the students of middle school on various topics related to emotional well-being and self-care.
We believe that resilience is a virtue that can facilitate growth during tough times and these activities aimed at highlighting each one of our strengths that make us resilient and adaptive to change.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most resilient and responsive to change.”
- Charles Darwin
