The Hamdan Bin Zayed School launched a set of initiatives as part of its participation in the Well Schools Network. The “My Belt, My Behavior” initiative is an assessment tool, by which teachers evaluate students by the end of each week and reward eligible students with a colored belt, similar to karate belts. Each colored belt represents students’ positive behavior and students compete to collect belts that reflect their best behaviors. The initiative has contributed significantly to developing and promoting positive behavior by encouraging students to collect the largest number of belts, by implementing tasks entrusted to them inside and outside the classroom. The initiative contributed to improve students’ behavioral and academic achievements as it encouraged them to exert additional efforts to achieve higher academic performance.
“Our school is proud to offer initiatives that achieve students’ and teachers’ wellbeing, based on the Well Schools Network’s pillars. Our numerous initiatives have had a significant positive impact and we will endeavor to launch and implement more initiatives that promote positive education, which helps to shape students' personality and acquire useful life skills that would ultimately enhance their wellbeing,” said Nadia Al Amiri, from Hamdan Bin Zayed School.
