THE THOUGHTBOX LEARNING JOURNEY
Our four stage approach has been created to support whole-school connected learning, empowering staff and enriching students through critical engagement with real world issues.
Our programmes have three main aims:
TO ENCOURAGE CRITICAL THINKING AND INQUIRY
- TO SUPPORT EMPATHY BUILDING AND RESILIENCE
- TO PROMOTE POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH BY MAKING CONNECTIONS
The learning journey enables students to gain the life skills they need in order to face the challenges ahead, to make sense of the world around them and to develop emotional intelligence.
