“School can be a happy and satisfying experience that provides a training or further development in awareness about our interactions with others. The goal for social and emotional learning/skills for life programmes is to give children the tools and understanding in order to enhance their resilience and develop their ability to cope capably with the ups and downs of life.”
— Christopher Clouder from Introducing Social and Emotional Education
‘Connection’ is one of Kamaroi’s core values. Alongside the Creative Arts, we place a strong emphasis on social and emotional education. We consider this integral to the development of individuals who are innovative, optimistic and resilient learners. During the Main Lesson, children are able to absorb a wealth of stories and images of humanity and ideals that have meaning. Each support the notion of ‘connection’ and reaffirm the notion that we each have a place, purpose and task and that we can help create a more positive future.
