28 Dec 2017, General
Doha, 27 December 2017. Aspire Academy organised an innovative interactive session for parents on Tuesday under the theme of the “Secrets to Excellence” to demonstrate how positive behaviour changes can stimulate brain development in student-athletes and youngsters and enhance performance.
Attendees received presentations from three of Qatar’s most prominent pedagogical and psychological experts, including the educational adviser and radio presenter Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Harami; Mr. Muhammad Al-Anzi, Psychological Consultant at Aspire Academy; and Dr. Jamil Babli, Head of Academic Support Department at Aspire Academy.
During the interactive session, parents had the chance to engage with the three experts and ask questions about the sessions and head about the latest research findings on how positive behavioural changes can motivate the performance of their children.
“We all believe that in order to positively change the behaviour of our students we need involvement and commitment from both parents and teachers. The turnout today demonstrates the common understanding among us. We hope that everyone who attended took something away with them that will help them positively change the behaviour of their own children and help them become better student-athletes at the Aspire Academy in future years who perform to their best”, Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Harami said.
Mr. Muhammad Al-Anzi discussed brain development and its role in the growth of athletes, saying: “New researches indicate that brains cells don’t stop development at a certain age as they continue to evolve. This demonstrates that human beings should not stop learning and developing and should always remain active. As for the positive behavior change, this is an essential tool to the development of the brain of our children.”
