Education

All children and young people have the right to quality education in order to give them the best start in life. Although how students cope and engage in education can vary, due to various circumstances & situations. Our Educational programs provide support for children and young people who may need it.

Educational Support Services

Our Educational Projects support students (Year 6 – Year 11),  particularly students who are at risk of disengaging from learning and/or at risk of leaving school early. The project assists young people to successfully transition and stay in school through engaging life skills groups and one-on-one work. We also specifically support students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander students and students with disabilities

Our educational groups range in topics covered and in length. Topics can include:

  • Building self-esteem, self-respect
  • Resilience building
  • Personal development
  • Healthy relationships
  • leadership skills
  • communication and team building
  • managing emotions including anger
  • cultural identity and anti-racism
  • budgeting
  • managing mental health & wellbeing
  • anti-bullying
  • cyber safety & sexting
  • sexual health
  • alcohol/other drugs

Every group is tailored to the needs of each group and is created in consultation with students, which can also include creative learning methods through:

  • Sports & Fitness
  • Arts & Music activities such as drumming, music & song production, mural design, cultural arts and more….

Our groups are currently running in partner schools across Bayside, Georges River & Sutherland, including primary and high schools.  If you’re interested in running life skills group at your school, we’d love to hear from you.
