Schools are increasingly called upon to take a proactive role in enhancing the self-esteem, wellbeing and emotional intelligence of students. There is also a growing understanding of the role that these things play in preventing and addressing such behaviours as bullying, substance abuse, school refusal and self-harm.
Building a culture of strengths, respect and fairness in the school community not only enhances learning, but makes it an enjoyable and accessible environment for students, staff and parents.
This value pack provides a kit of resources designed to create transformative conversations with young people about their feelings, goals, strengths and challenges.
The pack contains:
