Have a young person making the move from 6th class to secondary school this year during covid 19?? Worried how he/she will cope having missed so much of school ? Has he/she had enough preparation for the next phase of their education?? This year more than ever our children will need supports entering secondary school. Melissa has been successfully delivering this workshop for the last number of years with positive outcomes and parental feedback
Suitable for mainstream school pupils
Topics Covered– managing change, friendships, anxious thoughts/anxiety tools, impact of our brain on emotions, positive mindsets, practical issues (lockers, timetables, study etc), relaxation, coping skills and meditation in a fun and creative environment of peer support, art and crafts, games, music and relaxation
All of Melissa’s workshops are designed to be fun, creative, experiential and memorable using the mediums of art and craft, movement, games and group discussion. Research has proven that when you interact and experience activities you are more likely to remember it and implement what you have learned. Past participants also noted how beneficial it has been being able to share experiences and ideas with their peers. If circumstances change regarding Covid 19 the workshop will move online.
“Hi Melissa thanks for helping xxxxxx fit in secondary school. Your course was a great help. Gave him confidence he hadn’t got before meeting you. There was small issues but would have been major ones only for you “
“Melissa I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for xx. She was so nervous about going to secondary before doing your course. She bounced into school on the first morning. It helped that she made a good friend on the course who was going to the same school. Thank you so much and I would have no problem in recommending this course to any parent. Well worth the investment.”
