No horsing around at awards dinner
The school effect BITTERN Primary School pupils are speaking out against confronting social issues and developing messages to schools around the region. The pupils are involved in The School Effect, a resilience and leadership program that helps them to create, develop, fund and deliver social cause projects in the community. The program’s projects are created and selected by the grade 5/6 students, including divorce, homelessness, bullying, cancer and addictions. Program director Steve Brunskill said the program was not an add-on to the curriculum, but could be delivered through the curriculum as needed. Live Out Loud has been running these sessions for 24 years in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, East and South Africa and Denmark. Details: 0419 326573.
