Resilient Kids: Social and Emotional Learning

This workshop supports school staff working with Kindergarten to Year 6 students and provides participants with the opportunity to:

  • explore the Personal and Social Capability skills – self and social management, self and social awareness

  • unpack the resilience and wellbeing learning activities in the Challenges and Choices resources

  • observe a range of effective teaching and learning strategies that can be easily transferred into the centre or classroom to develop students’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and values.
