On Saturday, the 20th of September 2014, the assembly area of Barclyne College International was not just filled with guests, students and staff but with laughter as well. The interest in this event was overwhelming as many outsiders in addition to students and staff of the college attended the seminar on The Secrets to Happiness. The purpose of this seminar was to help the students relieve some of their stress before the coming AEIS and O Level exams. The idea is to help them go for their papers with a more positive attitude.
Known simply as 'The Happy Teacher', the guest speaker enlightened the audience with tips on how we can condition our minds and hearts to be happy. Along with several feats of magic, The Happy Teacher gave a very insightful talk about how happiness was within all of our grasp as long as we adopted the right attitude and thinking. His jokes, interesting props and deft slight of hand kept everyone entertained while empowering us with the skills to be happy. It is through happiness that we can achieve many great things. The secret is to believe in ourselves, be patient and be positive. Difficulties are not obstacles but opportunities to help us improve. We must always search for such opportunities and never, ever give up!
It was a highly interactive experience and everyone left the seminar beaming!
