Social Tuesdays provides a nurturing classroom environment. Our perspective is that all students are open to having an opinion, and even if they are nervous, their contribution is highly valued. As a result of our focus on Emotional Intelligence through Social Tuesdays, we have also observed our students as a group are more cohesive and there has been a significant increase in collaboration.

To be kind and to care. Kind to themselves, the environment and to others. Care for themselves both physically and mentally and then care for others where possible,” is sound advice from Head of Findlay Miss Rebecca Kerr.
