Building a safe haven for students

For children of essential workers, schools can serve as a safe haven from the chaotic outside world. A school in the UK opened its doors to its students and provided counselling and mental health support for those who had lost a loved one to the virus.

Teachers in rural Indonesia went beyond the call of duty and personally visited their students who do not have access to electricity or the Internet. In addition to conducting in-person lessons, they also provided the much-needed social interaction that students miss.

As schools around the world prepare to re-open, it is important to focus on building positive connections with the students. Join us this Thursday for the final instalment of The HEAD Foundation’s free, three-part webinar series “Educational Leadership in a Crisis” as school leaders from Southeast Asia share tips on caring for students during the pandemic.

Being in a low stream closes doors to many learning and employment pathways, but often students don’t know this until it’s too late.
NUS seeks to radically transform itself to help students tackle challenges such as COVID-19 and climate change, but mindsets of students and professors could be the hardest to change.
There is a significant disconnect between what young people expect from higher education and what their educational experiences actually provide.

That's all for the week!
