If there was ever a time to pull staff and pupils together, lift spirits, put smiles on faces then it’s as we head into 2021 – ready to attack the New Year with renewed vigor and optimism. Let us help you!
Following the smash hit success in the corporate world, we’re bringing our smallTOK format to schools. They are 45-60-minute bitesize virtual sessions. A chance to think, reflect, learn, laugh in the face of 2020, and look ahead with excitement to what’s to come.
With no upper limit on attendees, smallTOK sessions can be beamed into multiple classrooms at once. We’ve designed four sessions suitable for Upper Primary, Lower Secondary, Upper Secondary and Staff, check them out below…
Upper Primary: The Hero’s Journey
This session delves into the fundamental story of the hero, getting the pupils to recognise the commonalities of the classic hero storylines that we all love before applying those ideas to their own situations. Whilst speculating about how best they can fulfil their very own hero storyline, pupils will be encouraged to think about their success in the longer term, zooming out from where they are just now and making goals for the future that set their souls on fire.
Lower Secondary: Tiny Changes
In this session, students will explore a range of stories, both ancient and modern, and consider the common themes that link them all together, before understanding the life lessons baked into them that can be applied to their own lives. Pupils will then come to understand that every outcome that they experience, whether positive or negative, is massively influenced by their habits. And by simply making tiny changes over a long period of time, they can guarantee remarkable results!
Upper Secondary: Getting Unstuck
In this session, students will recognise different factors that can lead to a person feeling stuck in a rut, both in and out of school. Delegates will be encouraged to take full ownership of their destiny, arming themselves with the knowledge and resilience required to not just become unstuck, but to fully flourish and reach their full potential.
Staff: Same Storm, Different Boat
Though we are all in the same COVID storm, many of us are in vastly different boats. Some of us are cruising our way through calm waters, while others are on a wee dingy hanging on for dear life. Some of us feel like we are under a constant black cloud while the sun shines down on others. It’s normal in these weird times to feel a bit…weird. Same Storm, Different Boats draws upon emotional intelligence research to give delegates the time, space and language to articulate their experience, understand why they feel the way they do, but also allow them to recognise that everyone’s experiences are different and challenging in their own way.
