What is the difference between a soul & a spirit? 

What is the difference between the mind & the brain? 

Imagine someone asking these questions. What would you think about them? We would think that this is some curious person who engages in deep thinking & wants his answers! 

But if we say that these are two 10-year-olds asking these questions - what would you say then? 

Well, we would believe that their thinking skills are becoming sharp & they are in an environment that helps them explore, ask, & gain more knowledge.

It is a story that we live every day with different students of different ages. This magic happens in our well-being classes. 

But what are these ‘well-being classes’? We'll tell you… 

About Well-being Classes 

Well-being classes are specially designed classes that aim to break the pattern of a fixed mindset, inculcate growth mindset in children, enhance their social and emotional learning (SEL) skills, and work towards their holistic personality development. It is being achieved by: enhancing their confidence, public speaking skills, decision-making skills, and much more. In these classes, the children get a free environment along with the structure that a school class offers. The students freely share their thoughts and opinions, discuss them with the whole class, and learn from each other. These classes are conducted based on our specially designed Well-being Curriculum which is based on the principles of child psychology, positive psychology, science of parenting in the modern world, and pedagogical knowledge gathered over the years from around the world. 

But how will these well-being classes benefit the children? 

And can these be helpful for the child at school? 

Let’s find out…….. 

Well-being classes in schools lead to:- 

Good performance in academics 

In Well-being classes, students are taught ways to manage their stress and time, learn ways to prioritize their work, and much more. These skills help them manage their stress related to studies and exams, help them manage their time between studies and other activities, help them plan their study schedule well, and much more. All these skills require them to excel in academics.

Good social interaction with each other 

As the well-being classes have a dedicated focus on the students' social skills, the students learn how to interact with others, how to listen to others well, ways to engage positively with others, ways to resolve conflict with others, and other such skills that will help them in their social interactions at every step of their life. 

Better integration in the school setting 

The presence of well-being classes assures the students that the school cares for their well-being, curiosity, and views. They get an opportunity to learn practical skills while also being able to share all that they want to. It creates a positive relationship between the teachers and the students. Students feel excited to come to school and learn. 

Overall personality development 

There is holistic development of the child as the child learns various skills like public speaking, learning to ask questions, and learning to share their views - all of this helps the child be more confident and helps develop their personality. 

Builds growth mindset 

Students learn the skills of grit and resilience. They realize the importance of perseverance and ways to maintain their motivation and drive when meeting any challenge. Such learnings help them overcome the hurdles that come their way while maintaining their morale. 

Are well-being classes the only different activity that takes place in the school? Not at all!
