Kohanga Ako Learning Programmes
Miss Eaton’s Year 13 Physical Education class worked with Kohanga Ako students on a Health Promotion unit.
The aim of the unit was to increase the levels of physical activity for a group of people. Over several weeks, the Year 13’s got to know a group of Kohanga Ako students, planning engaging physical activity for them and looking for ways to increase activity over the course of a week.
Kohanga Ako students are learning about resilience through the Health and Literacy programme - BOUNCE BACK. This programme has been successfully implemented in many schools across Australia as a targeted way for students to develop their resilience. BOUNCE provides a template for the prompts we can ask ourselves during unpleasant or challenging situations. Bad times don’t last, things always get better, Other people can help if you talk to them - get a reality check, Unhelpful thinking makes you more upset - think again, Nobody is perfect, Catastrophizing only makes it worse, Everyone has ups and downs - it’s part of life.
