Guest speakers from the Swiss Police and the Youth Criminal System presented to our students the topic of risky behaviours, substance use and the law in Switzerland. They discussed first hand examples and share valuable advice about this important topic.
Guiding students for today and tomorrow
We understand the importance of supporting the whole child, not only to achieve results academically, but also for social, emotional and physical wellbeing.
Supporting students' social and emotional needs is vital to ensuring long-term self-esteem and confidence in themselves.
SUBSTANCE PREVENTION WEEK
A series of workshops will help students stay healthy and drug free by learning unbiased facts about alcohol, nicotine and other drugs.
Student ambassadors, teachers and parents will also be involved as they can play an active role in awareness raising, coaching and supporting
Vaping and tobacco
Other addictive substances
Through individual and group sessions, ISB guides students to make friendships, work in teams, deal with conflict, regulate emotions, develop empathy, compete fairly, respect others and value diversity. These are essential skills that will help them through their school years and beyond.
"Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it". Everyone experiences big emotions- and at ISB we believe this is okay! To help our students develop helpful coping strategies to manage these big emotions, we introduce the four "Zones of Regulation".
Our counsellors wish you a happy new year and give a warm welcome to our new and returning families at ISB.
“And suddenly, you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings” ...what will be your guiding words for 2022?
