TALK FOR PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS, SCHOOL COUNSELLORS AND PARENTS   -     HOW CAN WE HELP?
 
Increasing our understanding of Self Harm
 
The idea of our adolescents self-harming and struggling with thoughts of
suicide fills us with alarm and dread.
 
This talk aims to provide insight into why certain individuals choose this
form of behaviour and offers  strategies around supporting them.
 
It explores the following themes:
 
• Understanding humans who hurt themselves
• Taking a closer look at suicidal thoughts
• Making room for the expression of emotional pain
 
These themes unpack the ways in which we can:
 
• Potentially identify students in difficulty
• Introduce ourselves as an ally
• Become more mindful of our own reactions and communication patterns
 
PLACE:
Foundations for Life,
2 Hemyock Road,
Plumstead.
 
DATE & TIME:
Saturday 8 September 2018
9.30 – 11 am
 
COST:
R150

Social and Emotional Learning Centre

Categories: ALL THE NEWS , Early Childhood Development (ECD)
We have kicked off our Social and Emotional Learning Programme with the principles of Early Childhood Development Centres in low-income areas.

These principals are part of the Grow with Educare Centres project, whereby the principals and teachers are thoroughly trained and provided with a full curriculum, operating system, teachers’ guides, daily programmes, educational materials, toys, equipment, posters, books, policies and procedures, business skills and mentorship (a ‘school in a box’).

The early years of childhood lay the foundation for intellect, personality and social behaviour as an adult. The Grow with Educare Centres have therefore implemented our SEL programme to equip the principals with the social and emotional skills to manage daily challenges and relationships within their school environment and in their personal lives more effectively as they are the role idles for the teachers and the children.

Over the next few months we will be teaching the 8 core competencies within our SEL model, using creative techniques and activities. We look forward to learning and growing together.
