For years, we have heard about the importance of young people learning a set of life skills in order to be happy and continue learning throughout their lives.
AIRISS is a personal growth model comprising six internal strengths: autonomy, identity, integrity, resilience, sociability and wisdom.
Each of these strengths contributes to achieving happiness in a key area and helping to build a better world. The whole forms a complete and integrated unit that ensures that a person can continually grow in an upward spiral as a whole being. For a person to harmoniously develop his or her character, each strength must be projected in each dimension of a person's life, covering all aspects, including the physical, emotional, social, rational and transcendental.
We are family schools, because families have the right to education and a duty to educate. We therefore put a great deal of effort into guiding you as you carry out this essential task. We want you to be the best parents you can be to your children. Our concern is a concern for you as a family.
To support you and help you with your children's education, the school organizes Family Guidance Courses, in collaboration with the FERT Association - which is part of the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD).
At La Vall you, as parents, play a major role and the school therefore works to be in continuous direct collaboration with you.
There are also many other means available to the family for educating their children: retreats for parents and children (where the parents act as monitors), training retreats and breaks for parents who wish to attend specific training courses, etc.
This aspect is based on the belief that every person is unique, irreplaceable and valuable in his or her own right and must develop ethical leadership to be happy. By doing so, a person will discover his or her talents as well as the meaning of his or her life and this can be used to help others and build a better world.
The development of ethical leadership requires the student's personal commitment, but also of his/her parents and teachers.
In this way it is created between all a climate of trust, respect and freedom, where each person feels loved and assumes the leadership and responsibility of their behaviour.
