STUDENTS NEW ABILITY TO VERBALISE EMOTIONS

Kerryn Coombs

Last year PCW Merry and Junior Primary Teacher Megan attended The Wellbeing Classroom Conference, and brought back to Port Wakefield PS all they had learnt, which included the use of Kimochis® – toys with feelings inside. Through the use of the plush characters and feelings pillows, students have increased their vocabulary and their capacity to verbalise their emotions.

When they came back, the Kimochis® took off with a great big bang with the children in the Junior Primary class. The Kimochis® toys were number one on their list for Christmas and birthdays! We have had requests from parents to say we would really like to know more of the history and research behind The Wellbeing Classroom and Kimochis®. We are hoping to have Michael come out and do a workshop with the families and parents which we think will go down really well, they will love it.

The Wellbeing Classroom and Kimochis® has made such an impact on the wellbeing of students and families that all teachers will be trained through these programs over the next two years. Your support of SMG Community Services is needed to continue to provide tools and resources to PCWs and school communities to improve the wellbeing of children.
