This month’s JSA Behaviour Excellence Clinic was held on 10th February, 2019. Ambassadors were warmly welcomed by their coaches at the various levels as they submitted their assignments for the month. Next was the discussion of the monthly topics at the various levels.
The monthly topic for discussion at the Foundation level was “Goal Setting Seminar” (How to set goals and working to achieve them) facilitated by Uncle Nii. Ambassadors were guided to set S.M.A.R.T. goals for themselves. They were also taken through the importance of goal setting and how they can work towards achieving their set goals.
The intermediate level was facilitated by Uncle Quojo Baydu. They discussed “Communication Skills for Leaders”. Ambassadors were equipped with tips on the various Communication skills required for leaders. They also had a practical session whereby Ambassadors had to write down and make a presentation selling themselves for a sales/business pitch.
The Maturity level was facilitated by Uncle Richard Akita in the absence of regular facilitator Uncle Joojo Bediako. The topic was “Opposite sex relationships”. Ambassadors were educated on the Dos and Don’ts of opposite sex relationships and guided on how to handle such relationships.
Aunty Uzoma Tetteh facilitated the parents’ session. They also discussed Goal Setting for their children. Parents wrote out the goals they had for their children after which they discussed their selected goals in comparison to the goals their children had written down at the Foundation level. This was done to ensure balance in setting goals for their children.
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 were engaged in a cooking competition dubbed “Cooking without Fire”. Each group prepared their own sandwich meal with ingredients provided. At the end of the contest, Forward Thinking and Sense of Ownership were tied for 5th place, Personal Growth placed 3rd, Self-worth came 2nd and Integrity placed 1st for their teamwork, uniqueness and neatness.
We then had representatives from each level share what they had learnt at their various levels. Jonathan spoke for the Foundation level, David and Amy-Joy represented the Intermediate level, whilst Senah and Daniel spoke for the Maturity level.
Afterwards Mrs. Agyekum, a parent shared a few words of advice with the Ambassadors concerning dealing with strangers who may approach them nicely but have the intention of kidnapping them. She advised them to be careful around such people and to always inform their parents or teachers during such encounters. The closing prayer was then said and refreshments were served to bring the clinic to a close.
In attendance at the day’s clinic were 45 Ambassadors, representing 28 boys and 17 girls respectively. The next edition is scheduled for Sunday, 3rd March, 2019.
Thank you to the JSA team, parents, ambassadors, partners, sponsors, guests and all well-wishers for your support to make the February Behaviour Excellence Clinic a success.
