Games help children to habituate patterns of behaviour that are socially effective and culturally appropriate. The PLAY IS THE WAY® Program has proven itself in many schools throughout Australia and New Zealand by achieving significant improvements in the social and emotional competencies and well-being of students.
This one-day open workshop gives you the opportunity to experience the program just as you would deliver it to your children – by doing it! This is not a pencil and paper program but an experiential, powerful and effective program that will develop the necessary social skills of your students – all this playing games!
PLAY IS THE WAY® games engage children’s emotions and call for mastery and control of those emotions to achieve success. By being challenging, the games develop self-motivation and perseverance. They help children to identify the reasons for failure and foster optimism and resilience. Participation in the games will develop the positive social behaviour that improves living and learning.
Free of power-point presentations, the PLAY IS THE WAY® workshop is participatory and interactive. You don’t need to be sporty or fit to attend the workshop but simply be willing to play, enjoy and benefit. Just dress comfortably and reap the rewards. You will:
