This episode explores why a school’s wellbeing programme matters. Listen to wellbeing expert and school counsellor Carla Nagel from Hong Kong Academy explain why wellbeing programmes are crucial for students.
While kids might talk big about hating school, the reality is, the routine of school makes kids feel safe. When that routine is routinely interrupted, the impact can be significant.
In our uncertain school year, the question begs, what initiatives are Hong Kong schools putting in place to help our kids? Carla Nagel, the orchestrator of Hong Kong Academy’s (HKA) wellbeing programme, provides an insight into this important issue.
