Teaching well-being skills alongside academic skills help students build resilience, cultivate their strengths and find the joy in learning.

Positive Education brings together two main goals of education: academic learning and well-being. Schools that focus on this two-prong approach to education will see happier, more engaged students & staff.

Sha En’s workshops are well -planned with suitably chosen activities and examples that keep staff meaningfully engaged. She makes the effort to make it relevant for staff and is specific in her examples, assuring teachers that this can be done. She is also very approachable and kind and very reassuring, ready to answer our queries and uncertainties. A few of my staff have come up to me and told me that they always look forward to PosEd trainings. 🙂

Sha-En takes the effort to know the needs of the school. She gives her sound inputs and practical tips to make the effort works. One thing for sure is that there is never a dull moment in her workshop. She is able to pace the session to cater to participants’ needs.

Abdul Mutalib Mohammed Amin, VP, Yumin Primary

The talk by Sha-En is very engaging and she uses interesting examples to elaborate her points effectively. The strategies and tips she shared are very insightful and useful and she has helped both parents and educators who attended the talk understand how they can increase their well-being and be role models for the children through simple activities in their daily lives. Besides learning how to enhance personal well-being, the participants have also learnt how to promote positive interactions between themselves and their children. Kudos to Sha-En for the wonderful session!

It was inspiring. I would like to go back to my class and to be more deliberate in identifying my students’ strengths and helping them to realize what their strengths are.

Secondary School Teachers on the Building an Inclusive Class Culture with Character Strengths workshop

It’s unanimous – the workshops Sha-En conducts are very engaging. I’ve seen many workshops (local & overseas). The content is simple, bite-sized, and most importantly can actually be applied in the classroom! 

Muhammad Fadylla, Vice Principal, Shuqun Primary School

Everyone in the workshop felt great! The benefits extend beyond the workshop into our daily life when we do the exercises regularly. Attending this workshop is a positive step everyone should take to make our life’s journey more wonderful.

Aden Gan, Curriculum Director, Pro-Teach Education Group

Cultivating a Positive Workplace Culture” was an enriching workshop about mindfulness and character’s strengths. Training focus, activities and strategies introduced were made relevant to our educators’ work situations. I believe that our staff were able to connect and had developed greater intra- and interpersonal skills that would help them better manage themselves as well as work with others.

Kelly Hor, Head of School, Odyssey Pre-school
