Our non-competitive and curriculum based programs focus on physical, social, emotional and attentional self-regulating skills, developed to cultivate wellbeing, resilience and lifelong learning.
Our in-school programs have been specifically developed for students in each year level from pre-school and primary, through to secondary school. Life Skills Group teachers demonstrate how learning can be
"Our students are able to use the strategies and methods taught in the lessons of mindfulness, breathing, relaxation, self control; particularly when in stressful playground situations, anxiety management, values and movement in different contexts. We use Life Skills every day after lunch, and it has enormous benefit and enables our students to refocus attention and recenter themselves. They have told me that they sometimes use these strategies to help them fall asleep at night and often cope with annoying siblings."
Life Skills Group is hearing the call out to support students, teachers and parents particularly during this time in history. As we navigate through this new way of living, adapting our behaviours and reestablishing our social practices; social & emotional skills are now more than ever vital for a positive and an empowered way forward.

This program will give your students a voice in a safe learning space to practice social emotional skills giving them an opportunity to connect, grow and flourish, to move positively forward from a disrupted school year.

"With it being such a stressful year for both students and teachers, I feel all my students have learnt the value of calming their emotions in an easy way. I love the deep breathing exercise they do sitting on the mats with their hands on their chests. They really do the deep breathing. They are all focused and engaged, every single one of them. Listening and understanding values have help some of my students. They have a better understanding of self worth and they are treating themselves and their peers much better. They are able to regulate their feelings in an easy way."
“The Life Skills Group had an outstanding impact on the children in my class. They are less fidgety and distracted, and much more focused and responsive. I loved they've been given the opportunity to put together a sequence of yoga poses at the end of the program- assessment as learning!”
