In line with the UAE’s happiness programme for its people, Arcadia Education has devised its own for its pupils. The purpose-designed programme aims to fully educate the child, ensuring happiness and contentment within pupils.
It aims for the holistic development of a pupil. Elements of this progressive curriculum include:
- • Teaching children to make healthy choices regarding diet and nutrition
- • Inclusion of exercise programmes as part of school life to promote a healthy body and mind
- • Creating opportunities for pupils to appreciate and practice ‘giving and gratitude’
- • Digital detoxi¬fication by attracting children to outdoor education and games
Arcadia Education also embraces the concept of mindfulness; enabling pupils to calmly acknowledge and accept their thoughts and feelings. The curriculum allows for pupils to practice mindfulness by means of discussion groups, breathing techniques and self-awareness strategies.
