This program is designed to help year 6s and 7s transition into high school by dealing with a number of issues over a chosen period of time (anywhere from 1 day to 8 weeks). This can be run during school hours or after school hours – which ever best suits the school. We typically address topics such as:
- Self Esteem
- Healthy Friendships
- Cyber Safety
- Stress Management
- Decision Making
But these topics can be easily interchanged with any others on the Armed For Life topics list.
The results so far have been very positive!!
