These are workshops designed for children between 7 and 12 yrs
Workshops are based on ‘Socio-Emotional Learning’ and ‘Emotional Intelligence’. SEL is the process where children acquire positive attitude, skills and knowledge required to build good relationships, manage emotions, make good decisions, set and achieve set goals.
These workshops serve as an extension of one of the prime areas of your child’s development from their Early Years Foundation stage-(Personal, Social and Emotional Development). This is achieved by engaging children in activities that engage their emotional and logical thinking skills. Most importantly, children begin to build and reflect on the POSITIVE VALUES we try to instil in them.
Magnum Club (Children and Youth Development Workshop)
These are Emotional Intelligence (EQ) competent workshops designed for teenagers and youth
Research indicates that supporting emotional and social development is the missing piece in the education of our youth. Researchers from various fields of inquiry have come to similar conclusions- The importance of educating not just the mind, but the whole person. There is mounting evidence to support a strong link between socio-emotional learning and academic performance; research also suggests an increased likelihood that youths who build social- emotional competencies will develop VALUES and ATTITUDES that lead to safer, less risky life choices (Elias et al.,1997).
