Working with students of all ages, our focus is on individual ownership of behaviours through development of fundamental emotional intelligence of students. This supports students in recognising the impact of their choices on both themselves and others. We create connection through sharing and reflecting on situations at school, in class and the playground, as well as at home, students are engaged in activities and discussions that identify positive actions and responses.
Founded in positive frameworks and using strengths-based language, our workshops, utilise positive tools to build resilience, self-esteem and confident decision making at age appropriate levels. Supporting restorative practice with students, staff and parents are offered insight into potential strategies and aspects of awareness to build open communication, engaged interactions and so responsibility within student and staff interactions encouraging respect of individuals.
Student Workshops introduce the concept of “How Full is Your Bucket?” © (Gallup) through the children’s story and subsequent activities relating to their day at home and around the school. Students will partake in activities to relate the theme of bucket filling to their lives and so discuss situations that they have experienced and the impact on their buckets, as well as others. We will speak of “fillers” and “dippers” to understand impacts of our choices and those of others, looking at positive and negative behaviours, words and actions. We will introduce the idea of a “lid” to protect your bucket from others actions and choices. Senior students will have aspects of leadership included in their workshop to embrace bucket as a personal transition or planning and life tool.
Our NESA accredited staff development and parent workshops provide aligned information to the community utilising resources from Don Clifton, Adam Grant and William Glasser. We discuss research findings and evidence of student feedback and experiences, as well as experiences in utilising these tools and techniques within daily home, classroom and lives.
