Thursday 4.00 pm - 5.00 Term 3 2022 (8 weeks) Commencing Thursday 28 July to 15 September
Age 5 - 13 years
This term will run as 8 weeks.
We create a safe, inclusive and non-competitive environment to teach the tools for dealing with emotional upsets and mind chatter. Children are engaged through music, song, drawing and movement. Sessions include breath work and relaxation using visual imagery. Children have amazing insight into worldly affairs as well as their own emotions and they participate enthusiastically in the discussions, including exploring options of managing emotional upsets. We create a safe and non-competitive, ‘everyone is unique’ environment. Children during this age period begin to doubt themselves and compare themselves to others. We support them to recognise these feelings and through working with postures that challenge them, a context is created where children build resilience in the face of their fear of failure. Positive reinforcement builds self-esteem and confidence.
