Every week, HEADlines brings you the latest news, stories and commentaries
in education and healthcare. This week, get insights on the latest developments
in education.  
School culture in educational disruptions

With many schools struggling in these trying times, it can be easy for school culture to be overlooked with more immediate and critical concerns to address. However, building a positive school culture provides teachers and students with the resilience to adapt to difficult circumstances, such as those faced in the pandemic.

There are many ways in which educators can cultivate a healthy school culture that fosters a sense of safety, trust, and inclusivity amongst students, staff, and the community.

In The HEAD Foundation’s first Webinar series of 2021, “Positive School Culture in the New Normal, we feature outstanding Southeast Asian school leaders who will share how they built and maintained a positive school culture that helped their students and staff thrive in disruptive times. Register now for the first session on 21 January, 3 – 4.30pm (+8GMT).
