About

Our primary school workshops (Rookys) are an early-intervention approach to support the important middle years, as young people transition from primary to secondary school.

The workshops incorporate fun and creative activities that encourage students to explore themes like bullying and the importance of empathy; understanding and appreciating difference; and the impact of our beliefs on our behaviour.

Primary School Workshops are proudly supported by

WORKSHOP THEMES

 

Workshop 1 (Year 5)

Aims to create a more positive peer connection by investigating the impact and issues arising from bullying. Encourages lateral thinking and celebrates differences among students.

 

Workshop 2 (Year 5)

Challenges participants to explore limiting beliefs and behaviours, with the aim of improving the school experience for themselves and others. The workshop also introduces techniques for working in teams and strategies to cope with setbacks.

 

Workshop 3 (Year 6)

Introduces students to how ordinary people can be heroes in everyday life. Activities encourage empathy, self-awareness and individual authentic expression. An important component of this workshop is helping students identify their dreams, passions and life goals.

 

Workshop 4 (Year 6)

Encourages students to identify their perspective and the things that may be holding them back. Through positive choices and forward thinking, the workshop aims to increase self-awareness and build resilience, especially in times of change.
