Find out how OWIS’s kindness-focused community fosters confidence and empowerment in children.
Parents nowadays recognise the need for self-confidence in children. They want them to feel comfortable in their own skin and to feel confident enough to take on any challenge. Well, at One World International School, its vibrant global student and teacher community is driven by kindness to encourage exactly that. OWIS believes that its focus on kindness empowers students to enact real change in the world around them and be confident about themselves and their abilities. Here’s what else we found out…
Raising confident children in Singapore with OWIS
A kindness-driven place of learning
Many parents choose OWIS for its inquiry-led program, its student and teacher diversity and its reasonable fee point. But at the heart of OWIS lies its culture of kindness. OWIS encourages students to learn in a space that feels safe and welcoming. With teachers that lead by example, students learn that the best way to enact change and make an impact is to be kind while doing it.
Meet the Kindness Council and Kindness Leaders
One of the hallmarks of the kindness-driven culture at OWIS is the Kindness Council and Kindness Leaders program. The Kindness Council is an elected student body that works to promote kindness and compassion among students. Composed of secondary students, they oversee Service Projects and organise events to raise funds for charity, conduct awareness drives and other student-initiated projects.
How do you choose a Kindness Leader?
Kindness Leaders are selected from OWIS’ Grade 5 student body at the beginning of the academic year. They are trained to help with conflict resolution in the classroom and on the playground and promote kindness and positivity among younger students. The best part? Kindness initiatives have grown organically and students drive change in their own way because of how invested they are in the community.
How OWIS empowers children to lead positive change
OWIS teachers and instructors do more than just lecture about the importance of kindness. They have created programs and initiatives that empower students to promote kindness and lead positive change. Not only should children be empowered to believe in themselves, they should be empowered to use their own confidence to enact change in the world around them. The more empowered a child feels, the more likely they are to advocate for others, be more active in society and feel like they have a voice that they can use to make a positive impact.
