The ABWA Pastoral Care Department strives to support an all-round development of the learners. At Aditya Birla World Academy, we believe that in order for learners to reach to their full potential they need to feel safe, valued and respected in their learning environment. Thus, their wellbeing plays a pivotal role in the school’s philosophy. We provide an environment and curriculum that challenges learners to achieve their highest potential and which develops knowledge, skills and resilience to be successful global citizens. Our school counsellors are a team of well qualified and trained mental health experts who work with learners individually and collectively to create a school climate that leads to healthy learning, living, and growth. The team works continuously with the parents, teachers and section heads to create a warm and caring environment for subsequent academic growth for each learner. We are firm advocates of confidentiality, which allows us to create harmonious as well as healthy interactions with all the stakeholders. Our counselling approach is preventive as well as responsive. In order to maintain a space of continuous social- emotional learning, the team also undertakes whole school activities such as a varied Wellness weeks and Global School Play Day.

• Minds Matter  is a mental health curriculum that is grounded in the Four Quadrants of Positive Psychology, Social Psychology, Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), and Mental Health Awareness

The focus of the Quadrants is to ensure that all aspects of an individual's emotional and mental well-being are prioritised so that every learner can aspire to be the best versions of themselves.

At ABWA, the school counsellors have designed the curriculum to suit the needs of our student body. The school counselors follow a time-tabled weekly period, across grades LKg to 12, to deliver this curriculum. A set of focused, high quality, research-based intervention techniques and strategies are introduced that help in enhancing our learners’ SEL skills and mindful behaviour.

• Pastoral Week - Each year, one week is dedicated to a theme that is related to creating awareness around wellbeing and mental health. Learners are engaged in concepts specific to the predefined theme and they are equipped with new tools to manage their wellness. Activities are experiential in nature and to keep the energy alive inter-house competitions are also included. In the past, we have successfully conducted
