For the second year in a row, we kick off the Diploma Program Student Retreat for our 2019-2020 Junior Cohort. The retreat is mainly focused on helping students identify their strengths and set future goals. Through a series of team building exercises and other activities, we are able to identify student needs and areas of support.
The culminating activity for our Junior Cohort, titled “Robinson Speaks”, requires each student a two-minute talk about motivation, inspiration or preparation- similar to the short and powerful TED Talks. Our Seniors conducted the coaching sessions and developed the guidelines under which the Cohort worked.
A very warm thank you to Kim Piersall “Coach P”, Experiential Learning Coach from the Episcopal Academy in Philadelphia, PA, for leading the students during the two-day retreat.
