School Education is a very important and critical part of all school going kids. Schools provides a structured form of education and promotes a child’s mental and psychological growth.
Academic knowledge is not the only takeaway for the child, she / he will also learn other important life skills such as honesty, hard work, persistence, good manners, unity, sharing, teamwork and responsibility.
Children are like sponges that will absorb almost everything that is taught to them. By allowing them to learn in a school setting while they are young, they can be molded into good, responsible, and hardworking individuals.
The role of school in child development begins as early as pre-school and continues through childhood.
Children spend a significant amount of each weekday in a classroom, making it not only a place to learn academics but also an opportunity to teach things that will serve them beyond the schoolyard, like self-care, community involvement, and fostering a sense of connection and belonging.
Schools today, help to create an environment of engagement and curiosity about others to encourage the development of deeper social relationships.
Wellness is really the lifelong practice of positivity — adopting a positive attitude, enacting positive policies and practice, surrounding yourself with positive people and places, and forming positive partnerships and if the concept of wellness is imbibed into the child’s thought process, it will be a wonderful start.
Child Safety in Schools
A safe learning environment is essential for students of all ages. Without it, they are unable to focus on learning the skills needed for a successful education and future.
When violence is part of the educational setting, all students are affected in some way. Even though a child may not be the actual victim of violence in school, there is a very good chance that he or she will witness violent acts throughout the educational years.
Safety in schools is necessary to support the academic success of each child, giving them the opportunity to learn and achieve in a safe and nurturing environment.
Innovative techniques on school safety promote increased learning, feelings of school unity, higher levels of pro-social behavior and decreased levels of violence.
