Newly appointed Minister of Social Development and Sports, Michael Weeks, was on hand to congratulate 56 young people who recently completed the Mirrors Quantum Learning for Students (QLS) camp.
They were joined by 46 parents who completed the QLS parent workshop.
The programme was held during the recent school break. A ceremony was held to commemorate the achievement by all participants last Saturday.
A spokesperson said ‘Quantum Learning’ is a teaching method, based on “research about the brain’s natural learning systems”.
“The camp is purposeful in creating experience that elicit ‘success moments’. As students experience these success moments over and over, they develop higher levels of competence which yield greater levels of success.
“The camp is based on the ‘eight (8) keys of Excellence’, which is a framework for personal effectiveness and for living life successfully.”
Minister Weeks noted that students learned “a lot about themselves” during the four-day camp.
“They have learned valuable communication tools, relationship and problem solving techniques, the value of stepping outside of comfort zones and building relationships with others,” he said.
“Parents, aren’t these wonderful qualities? Some of you parents completed a portion of camp yourselves to support you in ‘making the connection’, for a better understanding of their experience and the opportunity to strengthen relationships with the whole family.
“We encourage you to practice these skills together, continue integrating the eight keys of excellence in your home. Match behaviour and values; learn from mistakes; speak honestly and kindly; make the most of every moment; make your dreams happen; take responsibility for actions; be willing to do things differently and live your best life.”
