Workshop Outcomes

The workshops get students to manage their fears and challenge their egos. When they do this effectively, they start to make better quality decisions. As competence, awareness and understanding grows this improves self-confidence. When you add all these things together you get resilience and resilient children make good learners.

These workshops will get the young people to reflect on their thoughts and beliefs, and the important role that these have to play in personal safety decisions. In just a few hours, participates will access the outcomes listed above
