Dulwich College Seoul in Banpo-dong held a “Dulwich Talk” on Tuesday April 10 at 8:30 a.m. featuring Dick Moore, a former headmaster of a British boarding school and an expert speaker on the topic of mental health. The event, which was open to the public, is part of Dulwich College Seoul’s “Year of Wellbeing in 2018.”
Moore has a compelling story to share and plenty of advice for parents, teachers and students. He explained the psychological changes that many students experience according to their age and gender and he suggested how students, parents and faculty members could deal with these situations wisely. After the speaking session, he engaged with students all day and will then lead a group of staff through a licensed Mental Health First Aid Course tomorrow.
“As we place equal emphasis on our students’ intellectual and mental health, we are very pleased to host Mr. Moore on this occasion,” Graeme Salt, headmaster at Dulwich College Seoul, remarked. “Psychological stability is the most important aspect of a student’s proactive attitude for study, and to achieve this it is necessary for teachers and parents to make efforts to understand and communicate with students.”
Dulwich College Seoul received the Teaching Initiative of the Year at the British International School Awards 2018, which represents a significant achievement among numerous schools around the world that follow a British curriculum.
