Are your year six students ready for the challenges of High School?
Using circus and creative play as our tools we have designed a strength based program to help prepare students to transition into High School smoothly. A person centred approach within small groups, ensures that we meet the individual needs of each participant and support them prepare for this exciting and challenging journey.
Transition to School Playgroup
IMS HUBS - Wollongong and Wollongong West Public School
Kind Art Ed was contracted to provide the creation and facilitation of a Transition to School Playgroup using music as a tool to engage and connect with families from diverse backgrounds. Illawarra Multicultural Services manage a HUBs program connecting New Australians, Refugees and Multilingual Families with young children to local schools.
Story Gifting is a program created by Lillian Rodrigues Pang
Lilli Rodrigues-Pang and Honora Jenkins facilitate a workshop where unique story gifts are created for participants to keep or gift to someone familiar or unfamiliar. In pairs or groups (strangers, family members, couples or friends) do a deep listening session together and then create a spontaneous story about their connection. The stories will be told to each other, and then written and given away as a gift.
