This version of the program is aimed at middle school aged students (aged 12-15) and runs over the course of 16 weeks. Unique challenges can arise in the teenage years and it can be difficult to navigate new social ‘rules’ and expectations.  

The activity-based program invites participants to explore a range of topics to better support the development of social skills by communicating what the learning intention is. By doing so, everyone has the chance to develop an awareness about 'where we're going,' 'what's been accomplished?' and 'what's left to do?'. This is part of building a predictable learning environment which assists students to tune in, be more proactive and find success. 

 

Topics in this program include: 

  • The Ins and Outs of friendships

  • What is a friend? 

  • Getting attention 

  • Wellbeing and social media 

  • Empathy

  • Resilience 

  • Dealing with disappointment (loss and grief) 

  • Handling anxiety 

  • Responding to dominating behaviours 

  • Being hurt, trolled or abused online

  • Maintaining friendships; feedback and compliments 

  • Effective listening 

  • Competition; winning and losing

  • Charity; acts of kindness 

  • Perseverance

  • Self-identity
