Guest Blog: Rose Hill Head Teacher on why adaptability is key to the life we are experiencing today

Nusrat Ghani

Resilience is the ability to cope with life’s challenges and to recover from or adapt to adversity. Things that we focus on to improve our pupils’ resilience include learning coping skills, doing things that promote our wellbeing, and building connections. Resilience can be eroded or worn down by difficult circumstances. What I see within our school community, is a strong sense of determination to move on from the difficulties caused by the pandemic. Our perseverance has helped us to grow in many ways and will help us to shape what life might be in the future.

Getting along is vital. Never has it been so important for us to show compassion, tolerance, and friendliness after such a long period of separation and isolation. Getting along can lead to understanding happiness enabling us to feel good and function well. We want our pupils to be happy and confident at school. Confidence is a very important outcome of their learning and is encompassed in positive memories, current successes and strong aspirations.

Our pupils have continued to develop their organisation skills; and never has this been more important. This means that they have been ready to learn, listen to their teachers, setting goals and keeping on track. In spite of the difficulties of the past 18 months, pupils and staff at Rose Hill School have remained positive, engaged and determined to create the best learning opportunities possible. The happiness of our community in our learning has been heartening to see; the way that staff and pupils have responded to different methods of teaching and learning has been nothing short of remarkable, and I congratulate and applaud them on all that they have achieved.

So, not a lost generation but a resilient, amazing generation of young people who are our future and of whom I am so very proud.
