As Director of Support Services, I had the opportunity to run two “Can We Talk?” group sessions in the Middle School in the past weeks.
“Can We Talk?” is a student-led discussion about topics of their choice. Students had the option to sign up to be a part of these groups and express themselves in a safe space. On Wednesday, February 27, the discussion was entitled “Moravian Academy: the Good and the Bad.” Students spoke about their favorite aspects of Moravian and things they would like to see change. Uniforms, food, responsibilities, and sports were just a few items that were discussed. On Thursday, March 6th, the “Can We Talk?” topic was about bullying. Students spoke about different types of bullying, the impact it has and what they can do if they see bullying occur.
Overall, our first “Can We Talk?” sessions were a success! I look orward to hosting more sessions in the upcoming months.
