Real Feedback from Real Teachers
"The most valuable aspects were the opportunity for students to reflect on managing themselves and realise that they not alone in the way they deal with situations that may arise and to realise there are strategies to deal with every situation".
"I loved hearing our students talking about the sessions in between workshops. We also had great feedback from parents when they heard about the content in the workshops".
"Being taught strategies of reducing stress. Especially the exercises! These are so simple but effective. Our students need to know these ways".
"Very clear presentation! Very good tools!".
"Stress strategies, breathing, tense. Love the egg/basketball. Excellent presentations - engaging, clear and activities/videos to keep students engaged and pitched at their level and interests".
The Background to Resilience Training
The program "Let's Make Me Resilient" was trialled across schools in Hawke’s Bay during 2016-17 and then presented at 14 secondary schools during the 2018-19 academic years. It is expected that a similar number of schools within Hawke’s Bay will use the program in the 2020 with many schools choosing to have Edmond present the workshop.
To spread the skills and better support young people, this ‘Teacher/Trainer Workshop’ is designed specifically to train others to deliver the program. Our vision is to deliver this by training teachers or local coordinators within schools and then offer an ongoing coaching process where Edmond supports schools to integrate the training within their curriculum.
