Social Competencies
The Program:
At Bendigo Violet Street Primary School we implement a practical methodology for teaching social and emotional learning using guided play, classroom activities and empowering language. Each teacher has recieved Professional development in the area of Play is the Way, an approach developed by Wilson McCaskill.
How Does it Work?
  • a unique program of physically interactive games 
  • key concepts to guide students through life and learning
  • a specific and empowering language to help attain self-mastery
  • a philosophy of behaviour education and student self-regulation that fosters independent, self-motivated, empathetic, life-long learners.
