Research indicates that the most effective gains in building a safe, inclusive school environment occur when all sections of the school community are involved.
Our unique programs help schools create this by offering educational sessions for teachers, parents and students. In this way we hope to bring about long-term cultural change in the schools we work with.
Although these modules can be delivered separately, many schools opt to have the issue addressed on all three fronts.
We run three sequentially layered workshops for students at their different age levels. This way we can build on, and add to, the knowledge base at each stage. We use both role-play and explicit teaching in our presentations with students, making them fun and energetic, as well as practical and informative. We have two facilitators in every session and try to involve the students as much as possible to maximise their learning. With this in mind we limit the numbers to approximately 50 students, or 2 classes.
We also now run a 4-week series for the Yr 5/6 levels that allows us to work on a more individual level with the students. It also helps us address more of the underlying issues that can influence an issue like this.
