STUDENTS NEW ABILITY TO VERBALISE EMOTIONS
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.
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.
