Building Resilience

Overview

In the first unit of our Building Resilience Programme our pupils will be introduced to our character called Skipper. Skipper, is the captain of his boat and like everyone on the river, goes through various ups and downs on his journey. On his way, he will introduce the children to ten different tools and resources that help us to navigate the river of life and support the development of resilience.

Your child will bring home a homework task and a family task for each of the units, please take some time to discuss the activities with your child
