Helping Hands

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

This course provides the opportunity for our senior pupils to read, help, play, mentor and complete activities or projects with the youngest children of the PLC community. Based on research and philosophies introduced through programmes such as ‘Better Buddies’ and ‘Leader in Me’, this Lighthouse Leaver’s initiative is intended to allow older students the opportunity to work with and inspire their youngest peers in the PLC community. It is a framework which will allow the girls to further engage in the school culture, to feel a sense of belonging and purpose and to enjoy the stimulating opportunities that arise when working with primary aged pupils.

 

Board Games

Bring along your favourite board game and play with your friends. Why? Playing board games brings people together, both in a competitive and cooperative way. Board games are fun to play and make you feel good through laughter and this, in turn, increases our feelings of happiness. Playing board games keeps your mind engaged by exercising it and building it stronger. Playing board games also helps to develop logic and reasoning skills, improve critical thinking and boost spatial reasoning. Playing board games improves a person’s ability to concentrate and focus for a longer period of time.

PRS – Y12 Becoming

In these lessons we will explore how humanity gets it so wrong sometimes. Are we mere members of an audience looking in on the theatre of life, or could we be involved in changing the script? What is reality in a world that is all about perception? If you had the choice: would you pick the blue pill or the red pill?

 

 

PRS – Y11 The Good life

In these lessons we will explore what happiness is, what drives us to be happy, and what influences our happiness. Is it an ongoing grasp for pleasure?

Hopefully, we will find out how to live a good life!
