The Circle of Wellness
By Deirdre Kinsella Biss
Editor, Principal Connections
With the release of the latest issue of Principal Connections, Editor Deirdre Kinsella Biss provides a sneak preview of what you can expect in our magazine this month.
We begin this school year with the well-being of our students near and dear to our hearts and our practice. We know students need to have a positive sense of well-being, a strong sense of self, and a real sense of belonging in the world to help them learn, grow and thrive.
As Catholic leaders, we face the challenge of creating learning conditions within our schools that empower students to grow in a positive, holistic, healthy manner. Our school environments must be welcoming, safe and caring while being equitable, inclusive and respectful. We have a personal responsibility, as well as a role to play, in bringing this initiative to life in our Catholic schools.
