Visiting speakers have been giving Elizabeth College pupils the chance to focus on and discuss their wellbeing. Part of the Year 10 and 11 pupils’ timetable was collapsed to enable them to attend the sessions which focus on road traffic safety, alcohol, domestic abuse and CV skills.
The sessions are designed to be interactive and promote debate. The speakers posed questions on difficult issues asking pupils what they would do if presented with certain scenarios.
Rex Williams, Road Safety Officer at Guernsey Environment Department presented ‘Ghost Street’, Chloe Molnar from Action for Children led the discussion on Alcohol, Millie Bourgaize from the Hampton Trust led the discussion on Domestic Abuse and Head of Wellbeing at Elizabeth College, Mr Heaume, focused on CV skills.
Wellbeing is taught at Elizabeth College as part of the Pastoral Care provision. The curriculum is designed to enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life and equip pupils with the tools needed to lead successful and healthy lives, both personally and in their chosen career.
