This week Psychologists Kimberley O’Brien and Simonne Cohen are heading to Fairfield Public school in Sydney to start facilitating ‘The Best of Friends Program’ for 12 lucky male students from Year 3, 4, 5.
The program will go over two weeks and will include aspects of the new program workbook currently under production here at Quirky Kid Publishing.
The 8 hours workshop will covered areas such as Making Friends, Empathy, Compromise, and Peacemaking and others key areas around Social Skills. Students will participated in a range of activities including painting, play dough, role play, and presentations while discussing and practicing the finer points of friendship and playground issues.
We will update this post with more information as they become available. The Best of Friends has been offered to a number of school around Sydney like: Moriah College, Illawarra Grammar School, International Grammer School, St Thomas Public School, Thirroul Public School, Redlands, and many other.
