Live4Life: Educations Sessions
The Live4Life program has been a great success so far within the 5 secondary schools so far this term! We have covered an Introduction session in which Markus a young man involved with our partnership organisation WayOut came to shed some light into what it was like growing up and “being different” he did a great job of engaging and motivating the year 8’s, they all had plenty of questions for Markus.
We then jumped into session 1: What’s Up! Taking a closer look at what mental health is? What are mental health problems? How do we know if we need help! Students did a great job negotiating some group work takes and they all got involved with the games! Lots of laughter and learning!
Session 2: In your Head! Takes a closer look at how our thoughts, feelings and actions are all connected. Students participated in a range of interactive activities and a group work task which encouraged them to interpret and act out a range of different scenarios focusing on common issues impacting young people.
We would like to formally welcome the Sunbury and Macedon Ranges Specialist School’s Bullengarook campus into the Live4Life family! We have been running our term 2 programs and really enjoying working with the students at Bullengarook campus and hope to continue our program with them into the future.
We are very proud of our Crew members who have all stepped up to help educate the year 8’s! They have given up their own time both within school hours and after school hours and are doing a fantastic job! So we’d like to thank all the schools for continuing to encourage and support the Crew as they learn more about mental health issues and lead the year 8’s in de-stigmatizing issues surrounding mental illness. Well done guys!
