Partnership in the Iron Triangle
Relationships can be hard, particularly when we have all kinds of emotions swirling around in us. Kind people do unkind things, even by accident. We all make mistakes. Children need opportunities in low-risk environments to find new ways forward together. They need language that makes sense about what’s going on for them as well as tools that help them get along as best as they can.
Five early years classrooms in Port Augusta across three different schools have commenced a new Wellbeing Classroom program through an exciting partnership between SMG and Port Augusta Communities for Children
They have been putting into practice what they have learned in the classroom ‘talk nicely please’; ‘please give it back’; ‘I can do this, I can be brave’. The children are having fun and they feel safe.
"Listening to children talking and interacting
in the yard has seen an exciting change."
Your gift to this initiative will continue to provide life changing tools and resources for each child that builds life and social skills as well as resilience.
When people work together we see change. SMG is taking the lead in facilitating a ‘Collective Impact’ conversation with multiple stakeholders in the Whyalla Stuart community. Collective Impact is a framework to tackle deeply entrenched and complex social problems. The group have commenced working together with a common goal to provide opportunities and see potential realised in the region.
