At CDS, we endeavour to help our students find balance in their lives. To this end, in addition to challenging and inspiring the students in our care academically, another goal for us as educators is to help them be healthy in mind and body.
In order to live a well-balanced life, there are many factors to be considered:
Coping and resilience skills
Achieving one’s own balance among sometimes competing academic, extra-curricular, family, spiritual, and leisure activities (which should include both social and alone time)
