Last week, Nadeen School was awarded an Innovation and Excellence award as part of Gulf Insider’s Education_bh drive of revolutionary ideas in education that have been implemented across the Kingdom of Bahrain. Nadeen School put forward the Unique Child Programme and this was recognized.
The Unique Child Programme was initiated in the 2017/2018 school year and has only been building from then on. Given our philosophy towards our holistic approach to children and their education combined with our pastoral care programme, the Unique Child Programme is an extension and enhancement of this. When it began we had 4 or 5 students participating in the programme and now we have over 30 students that are benefitting from sessions. The programme was planned, with everything we do at Nadeen School, with the students at the heart of it and also in conjunction with our pastoral care programme here.
The programme really hones in on getting to know the students, what they are passionate about and what really gives them a buzz and sense of achievement which we then build on and see what can help support them to develop social and emotional skills at school. The aim of the sessions is to raise their self-esteem and give them a boost in confidence. This is then reflected in their ability to socialise with others in a positive manner but also transfer this confidence into their learning in class.
