PUTTING WELLBEING AT THE FOREFRONT IN SCHOOLS

 

Parents are increasingly valuing schools that provide student wellbeing programmes. Why? Because one of the most obvious outcomes of life over this past year has been the reduction in overall wellbeing, especially among children. 

A staggering 96% of admissions officers at international schools report that parents now believe student wellbeing provision to be an important or very important factor in school choice for their child, according to a white paper published in February by ISC Research, a leading provider of international school data, trends and intelligence. 

In an effort to support the overall wellbeing of its students, parents and faculty, Fairgreen International School has developed a robust wellbeing programme, led by Head of Counselling Jackie Greenwood with support from the school’s Wellbeing Team. We asked Jackie to share how Fairgreen is at the forefront of providing wellbeing support for students:

We are pleased to announce that Fairgreen International School has been recognized as a Common Sense school by the namesake nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of media and technology.

AS FEATURED IN MOTHER, BABY, CHILD MAGAZINE: WHY CHOOSE AN IB EDUCATION FOR YOUR CHILD?


There is probably no other place on Earth where school choice is so abundant than here in Dubai. We talk to Fairgreen International School about how IB education prepares your child for the real world. 

When considering what school is right for your child, one of the most important considerations is curriculum: how and what your child will be learning. One of the buzzwords, or rather buzz acronyms, in education today is “IB.” What is an IB education? 

Even though it launched more than 50 years ago, the International Baccalaureate still needs explaining, especially to parents just beginning to research school options for their little ones and to some expats who have come to Dubai from countries where the IB is just beginning to take root.

Educators around the world, however, understand the history and opportunities that an IB education affords students, and why colleges and universities tend to admit IB students at a higher rate than their non-IB counterparts. So, what is so special about an IB education?
