WHOLE CHILD INITIATIVE: CHALLENGED

HOW DO YOU INDICATE
CHALLENGED LEARNERS?

EACH GRADUATE IS CHALLENGED ACADEMICALLY AND PREPARED FOR SUCCSS IN COLLEGE OR FURTHER STUDY AND FOR EMPLOYMENT AND PARTICIPATION IN A GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT

INDICATORS FOR A CHALLENGED CHILD

These indicators may serve as a needs assessment, a set of strategic goals and outcomes, a framework for decision making, or the definition of what a whole child approach to education truly requires. However you choose to use them, please share them widely among your stakeholders and involve many voices in soliciting evidence related to their implementation.

The Whole Child Approach is an effort to shift the focus of education from mere academic achievements to each child’s long-term development and success through the involvement of everyone, from teachers, to schools, to parents, communities, and the learners themselves.

OUR DEDICATION

REX acknowledges that everything it does, from publishing superior learning materials, to providing ISO-certified printing services, to holding relevant professional development seminars for educators and school administrators, are ultimately for the child (“Para sa Bata”). But REX is not content with simply serving the child; it envisions a Whole Child: a child who’s safe, healthy, challenged, supported, and engaged.
