This month’s JSA Behaviour Excellence Clinic served as the maiden edition for the year 2019. Ambassadors were warmly welcomed by their coaches at the various levels and they submitted their assignments for the month.
The monthly topic for discussion at the various levels was Listening, Questioning and Public Speaking skills for Foundation level facilitated by Uncle Nii. Ambassadors were taken through basic tips on how to be a good listener, ask questions effectively, and speak well publicly to improve their communication skills.
The intermediate level was facilitated by Uncle James in the absence of regular facilitator Uncle Quojo Baydu. They discussed How to become a Confident, Proactive & Assertive Leader. They focused primarily on being proactive and how to also teach others to be proactive as leaders.
The Maturity level was facilitated by Uncle Joojo Bediako. The topic was “Family Relationships” (Sibling relationships, child-parent relationships, step-sibling relationships etc.). Focus was on how to boost healthy relationships with family members (both nuclear and extended family).
Aunty Ethel facilitated the parents’ session in the absence of regular facilitator Auntie Uzoma Tetteh. They had a review of the entire program over the course of the year, giving feedback on activities and providing recommendations for the way forward. Parents also shared their various experiences regarding the overwhelming questions children ask and how to manage them. They were also advised to be patient with their children in absorbing their questions.
Next was our usual categorization into the 5 Value Groups; Integrity, Forward Thinking, Self-Worth, Personal Growth, and Sense of Ownership. This month the groups also discussed the annual questionnaire providing their views on the program so far.
We then had representatives from each level share what they had learnt at their various levels. Serlom and Fafa spoke for the Foundation level, Maame Serwaa and Faith represented the Intermediate level, Senah and Daniel spoke for the Maturity level.
The group leaders from each value group then presented what they had come up with about the annual questionnaire, giving out their observations and suggestions to improve the program.
Afterwards Uncle Joojo Bediako shared a few words of motivation with the Ambassadors. The closing prayer was then said by one of the Ambassadors and refreshments were served to bring the clinic to a close. In attendance at the day’s clinic were 38 Ambassadors, representing 27 boys and 11 girls respectively. The next edition is scheduled for Sunday, 10th February, 2019.
Thank you to the JSA team, parents, ambassadors, partners, sponsors, guests and all well-wishers for your support to make the January Behaviour Excellence Clinic a success.
