What is holistic education and why is it important?
At Haileybury Astana, we provide a holistic education that balances academic achievement with the development of character, resilience and leadership.
Holistic Education is a methodology which focuses on preparing students to meet any challenges they may face in life and in their academic career. The most important theories behind holistic education are learning about oneself; developing healthy relationships and positive social behaviours. Also developing social and emotional skills, such as resilience.
Pupils learn not only in the classroom, but also outside of it. A wide range of activities from sports, arts, drama and learning new languages, to charity and social projects give pupils many valuable life skills.
