We are so pleased to announce that with thanks to your generous support, we have been able to expand our Kids on Track program. In 2016 we delivered the service to an additional four schools including Aldercourt, Bonbeach, Kananook & Mahogany Rise Primary Schools.
Cranbourne Park and Seaford North Primary Schools, who have both been with us since 2011 continued to be involved, as they believe the program is critical.
Delving into topics including drug and alcohol awareness, cyber bullying and safety, anger management and anxiety and depression: this year alone the 8 week program has reached over 120 grade 5 and 6 students, giving them the skills to make better informed choices. Even at this young age, many students are experiencing and displaying anti-social behaviours that bring trouble to their day to day lives.
Our Kids on Track program aims to help them overcome this and have a better future.
After completing the Kids on Track program, ALL of the students at Seaford North Primary School indicated they would do things differently in the future.
At Kananook Primary students felt that the way they managed their anger improved by 50%."I learnt that there are other ways to deal with anger instead of taking it out on someone."
Students at Mahogany Rise Primary School felt their knowledge and understanding about privacy and what they should and shouldn't post online improved by 40%. "You can't delete stuff from the internet once it's posted, so don't put up pictures you don't want to be shared or your personal details."
