VIA Character Workshop

SHS Parents had the opportunity to explore their own VIA Character strengths on November 23 during our school mindfulness initiative, led by current parent, Carla Weinstein. This unique opportunity allowed us to connect as a parent community, deepen our involvement in SHS's commitment to character development and grow our fluency with a language the boys are learning every day. 

We explored the 24 character strengths, which fall across six broad virtue categories that form the underpinnings of Values In Action (VIA). Through the lens of mindfulness, we learned how the strengths help positively shift perspectives on performance, grow attentional capacities, broaden self-awareness, and develop psychological flexibility. 

This session was so informative, we recorded it for those parents unable to attend.
