Fun Friends program at Umina
Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 students at Umina Beach Public School will be participating in a Fun Friends Program throughout Term 3.
Over the coming weeks, students will be focusing on ways in which people's families and homes are similar and different.
"They will be learning about happy times and scary times and how to be brave when times are scary," said principal Ms Lyn Davis.
She said key components students focused on during the first week of the program included: Sense of identity (who am I, saying who you are to others); Feeling scared is okay; Being brave; Similarities and differences in people; Social skills; and healthy lifestyle choices.
The program aimed to foster better emotional and social wellbeing amongst students and to instil the importance of empathy, perseverance and community mindedness in students' day-to-day actions, Ms Davis said.
