Well-being is the state of feeling good and performing well in your life.
At GPIS, we go beyond academics; we care for our family members’ socio-emotional well-being.
At GPIS, we have a dedicated team for students’ well-being. This team consists of Counselors, Assistant Counselors, Psychologist, Student Development Coordinator, Student Development Leader & Special Educational Needs (SEN) Leader. They deal with day-to-day resolutions and the enhancement of the general student behavior. The well-being team is regularly there for consulting and continual development of our students’ well-being.
This year, GPIS is implementing a school-wide approach to discipline in the classroom.
Thirty of our pedagogical and administrative teams have become certified educators in Positive Discipline in the Classroom by participating in workshops facilitated by a trainer from the Positive Discipline Association. Those educators facilitated workshops to all our GPIS staff members. The Positive Discipline training our staff has received is aimed at developing mutually respectful relationships. Positive Discipline enables teachers and admins to apply kindness and firmness together at the same time.
