I'm soo excited to be  an Associate Trainer for Highway Heroes & Little Highway Heroes - a social and emotional learning program which aims to cultivate resilience and wellbeing within every child aged 4-12 by teaching 33 explicit social and emotional skills. 

This program is Kids Matter approved and is Australian Curriculum Approved (with ACARA).  It is in the process of being accredited with BOSTES (NSW Curriculum Board). More info on Highway Heroes & Little Highway Heroes here: http://www.bestprograms4kids.com/about/

This program has easy lesson plans for teachers and educators to deliver, as well as take home information for parents from every lesson.  

In the Highway Heroes program kids learn how to:

  • calm down,
  • develop friendships and cope with friendship flare-ups,
  • recognise how their thinking can impact on their emotions,
  • be socially assertive and stick up for themselves as well as
  • develop staying power and grit when it comes to learning
This program is one of the best I've seen for including all of the social and emotional skills all kids need. 

Here is an article written by Claire Orange & Helen Davidson, the authors of Highway Heroes, about how friendships impact on a child's learning. http://www.bestprograms4kids.com/friendships-learning-cant-one-without/
