What does well-being mean to you?
Well-being to me constitute the holistic development of an inclusive child that includes
physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development by working on the inner and outer
strengths of the child.
It also includes removing discrimination and barriers, and enforcing love and respect
amongst every child where society, community, family, teacher and friends play an
important role.
I also believe that well-being is achieved by practicing self-care, self-protection by each
individual. Every child should know the benefits of healthy food and exercise to their body
and they should all know the ways to avoid and not become part of discrimination and
bullying in schools. They should also be taught about the importance of relationships, love
and respect.
How are you currently supporting and promoting well-being?
My experience with supporting and promoting students’ well-being was in the past, when I
worked as a teacher.
I always used to start my class with a positive note by asking them about what healthy food
items they had previous day, and one special thing they have done in the class today for
themselves or for the other classmates. Then we used to a small 5 minutes session on
warming up to know the importance of physical health and make them more active for
further studies or cognitive tasks. I always used to encourage students to help each other in
projects for nurturing healthy communication, social and emotional well-being in them.
Besides all this, we used to have an appreciation session to acknowledge those who have
helped others in the projects or helped someone in society and family. I used to make sure
to have a small discussion at the end of the day about their views and suggestions about
respect for each other, prevent bullying, avoid discrimination, and their strengths and
