Emotional Intelligence


St Joachim's School is an Emotional Intelligence School which prides itself in teaching and demonstrating kindness. 

We aim in teaching the students the skills needed to navigate their world; Identifying, expressing, using and managing their emotions for success​. In 2021 all St Joachim's staff have undertaken  EQ training to help students build capacity to become emotionally literate.

The three focuses of Emotional Intelligence teaching are; 

  • KNOW YOURSELF-Understanding your own and other's emotions
  • CHOSE YOURSELF- Making strong choices and being your best self 
  • GIVE YOURSELF-Creating a better world through kindness and care
