Conglom (Circle Time)

Conglom Time is a loosely structured community time usually held in the first slot of the school day. It provides as safe atmosphere to discuss ideas, opinions and personal experiences. The focus is mainly on developing in students a knowledge of self and a knowledge of others, through social interaction and dialogue. The conglom time in higher grades is teacher-led in the first term and in the second term it is more student-led where students choose an idea or experience to share with their peers [TED talks, games, debates, sports, facts, current affairs]. Typical conglom activities include listening attentively to others, sharing one’s opinions and feelings clearly, collectively looking for solutions to common class problems, resolving conflicts creatively, fostering cooperation and building self-esteem and self-direction.
