The British School in The Netherlands - News & Jobs
In a past edition, we shared how Karren van Zoest, Headteacher and Rhiannon Phillips-Bianco, Wellbeing and Mental Health Curriculum Leader, from Junior School Leidschenveen (JSL) were leading the way in prioritising and supporting our students’ wellbeing and mental health. They are continuing the good work and have recently had another article published, in Relocate Magazine–you can find the link to the article below. The new strategies are having a positive impact and being enthusiastically adopted by students, teachers and parents. We are starting to create an environment in which students will feel more comfortable asking for and gaining the help they need. Many new initiatives are planned for next year–the journey continues!

Wellbeing and mental health isn’t just a concern for students of course. Adults can also employ the same tools, strategies and techniques being taught to students at our Junior school. It’s largely about developing our own self-awareness. The BSN supports staff with many Wellbeing and Life-Planning initiatives, an example is a recent Mental Health workshop. In addition, we ensure that we signpost staff where to get further information and help. Our International Leadership Academy (ILA) recently organised a very popular and well received workshop on building personal resilience.

It’s so important to keep talking about these topics and supporting each other, especially through dark November days.
