Higher education and careers fairs
We attend higher education and careers fairs throughout the UK for students in Years 11, 12 and 13. A highly trained team of staff or our experienced student ambassadors will be available to advise students and their parents on the opportunities available at King’s, student life, and applying to us. If you are organising your school or college’s higher education or careers fair, please contact us as soon as you have a date!
These motivating and inspirational talks focus on how being conscious of our food choices and making simple healthy changes can have profound, positive effects on every one of us and every aspect of our lives, almost immediately. It moves listeners to want to improve their diet as they walk out of the door. Our teen years can be a stressful time, students learn how to manage their stress, sleep, energy levels, immunity and recognise their own deficiency symptoms during these effective workshops.
Self-care is proving to be difficult to master and weave into our teachers frantic lives. As human beings we must prioritise our own well-being and as teachers as well we can begin to place the same emphasis on staff well-being in our schools as we do for the mental health of the children we teach. Self-care starts with you and small acts every single day. Imagine connecting to and feeling the magic you work so hard to create in the classroom and in your life.
Imagine the impact on those around you and your own happiness levels. You are exquisite and far too important not to take care. Travelling took up much of Kelly’s 20’s before she jumped heart first into being a primary school teacher. Becoming a single, working mum of 2 small people wasn’t part of the plan, yet it became one of those life defining moments. A change of school, friendships and self-esteem levels, thankfully coincided with becoming a yoga teacher and self-care became a priority. Kelly used everything she had learnt on her yoga journey so that she could continue to be a Mum, a friend, a daughter, a teacher, the light in someone’s day and a role model to others. Kelly is now at the very heart of well-being for teachers, empowering and supporting them every day- not just when times are tough. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
