Here is a list of some of the evidence based programmes and practice we use in our school.
Friends For Life
Is an evidence-based anxiety prevention and resilience building programme. The ten sessions help students, aged 4- 13 years, to develop resilience by teaching them effective strategies to cope with the normal everyday challenges they face and by helping them to develop effective coping and problem-solving skills to manage emotional distress, including worry, stress, change and anxiety. Skills learned throughout the programme help students both now and in later life.
The Dinosaur Social Skills and Problem-Solving curriculum is a child training curriculum that strengthens children’s social, emotional, and academic competencies such as understanding and communicating feelings, using effective problem-solving strategies, managing anger, practicing friendship and conversational skills, as well as appropriate classroom behaviours. The Classroom Dina is delivered 2-3 times a week by facilitators/teachers in the junior classrooms.
