Personal Development

We want our students to be happy children and to become well-balanced future adults, able to develop beautiful relationships with those around them, to empathise and be receptive to the environment in which they live. In addition to curricular activities, these children need to invent, take risks, make mistakes, play together and enjoy life. They need personal development.

Avenor College’s vision is inspired by Howard Gardner’s theory of “multiple intelligences”, according to which the school must develop and motivate students’ individual values ​​through academic, sports and artistic programmes supported by personal, emotional, and social factors. Therefore, we have developed dedicated activities and programs as follows:

PSHE classes

Every week, Avenor College students have a personal development class with a psychologist in which, through drawing, therapeutic stories, role play, they learn to understand each other and to understand those around them better.

Assembly

These meetings attended by children from different grades, grouped by age, point out the key aspects of school life, through experiential learning activities during PBL (Project-Based Learning) activities.

Form-time

Every day, each form tutor dedicates 20 minutes to teach students how to learn based on an action plan established in the meetings of each department. This plan is based on the needs of children and aims to train and develop study skills and a reflective attitude towards learning.

Learning outside of the classroom

Avenor College students participate in many activities (both inside and outside the school) that bring them into contact with the real world, teaching them to feel part of a community in which to behave proactively and responsibly.

The school from home

This is a personal development programme created by our team of school counselors for parents in the community. The purpose of this initiative is, on the one hand, to facilitate moments of meeting, sharing and exchange of parenting ideas, and on the other hand, to provide support through the Avenor team of psychotherapists in collaboration with various specialists in areas associated with parenting and education.

“House points” system

Children from the entire school are divided into four houses and accumulate points for joint activities and projects, school events or volunteer activities. Belonging to houses helps them to develop relationships with older or younger students and to join forces in common goals.

Student council

It is the way in which students can express their point of view (through representatives elected by vote in each class) on how they think school activities should be conducted, but also an opportunity to develop their leadership skills.

Students of honour

It is a distinction that is awarded once a year, based on the vote of all teachers and form tutors, following clear criteria. Students of honour demonstrate very good academic and extracurricular results, are role models, have a proactive attitude towards learning, actively participate in school events, are good colleagues and friends.

Brightest Star

It is a distinction that is awarded once a year, based on the vote of all classmates who choose the student who has shown that he/she is supportive, helps them during classes and beyond.
