‘In Pursuit of Happiness’ delves into the essential role emotional wellbeing plays in the lives of young learners, emphasising the role of emotional wellbeing for long term success.

It suggests that AI can address issues like social inequality, a student’s mental health while also relieving teacher workload.
‘Life in the Skills Locker’ takes a turn towards the importance of soft skills, urging us to think beyond traditional academic metrics. This article highlights the importance of skills such as emotional intelligence and critical thinking for future success. Schools are gradually incorporating STEAM and problem-solving projects to prepare students for a rapidly changing world.
