Hillside Christian Schools celebrate 4th Annual Staff Enrichment Day
Cay Bay – On Friday, October 29, staff and faculty of the Asha Stevens and Helmich Snijders Hillside Christian Schools spent the day at Seaside Nature Park as a part of the organization’s teacher development program. This year’s theme “Live, Laugh, Love” was a reminder to remain mindful, compassionate and to keep it light when life throws you all kinds of curveballs.
Mindful Caribbean Agency (MCA), which specializes in corporate coaching programs and mindfulness in the workplace, had arranged for 77 of Hillside’s employees to do team‐building exercises, reflection assignments, mindfulness, and contests at the peaceful and rustic location that is Seaside Nature Park in Cay Bay. The employees were divided into groups and rotated between different stations ranging from Body‐Scan to “Flying Carpet”, “Win‐Win”, “Jelly‐Volley”, horse activities, and a nature walk led by Mr. Rodrick Halley, proprietor of Seaside Nature Park.
Mrs. Asha Stevens‐Mohabier, Chief Executive Director, spoke directly to the staff and explained the meaning of the theme from a biblical perspective and emphasized love as described in 1 Corinthians 13 – the greatest gift: “i
. In a statement, Mrs. Stevens said, “Our staff is our most valuable asset and it’s important that we take care of them and acknowledge their need for professional development, training, and teambuilding. Our annual Staff Enrichment Day is an investment into our employee’s wellbeing and mental health, which will help them reduce stress and anxiety, especially in the
aftermath of these turbulent past few years”.
A few generous sponsors in the community donated staycation packages that were raffled off and all employees received a small goodie bag with some items to keep their hands healthy. Special thank you to La Samanna Hotel, Port De Plaisance Resort, and Belair Beach Hotel for their kind support of the teachers and staff of Hillside Christian Schools.
Having diverse lifestyles and backgrounds, our coaches are all different. All have in common being committed, inspirational, professional and connected with compassion. We work with openness to differences and leaning in to common grounds as a starting point for every journey towards change with our clients.
