Twenty new activities added (August 2018)
In August 2018 All Right? launched an extended Sparklers wellbeing toolkit.
Following requests from schools 20 new Sparklers activities were added, including ten activities specific to year 7 and 8 tamariki which focus on topics such as working together, building friendships and understanding and regulating big emotions.
The extended toolkit was launched at Breens Intermediate in Christchurch, who were involved on the development of the new Year 7 and 8 activities.
Breens Intermediate teacher Stephanie Pole said the school introduced Sparklers' activities as part of their Breens' Values and Wellbeing programme to assist students showing anxiety and low self-esteem.
“Since the beginning, there has been a noticeable change for many of our Breens' whānau. The fun activities help boost the confidence and happiness of the students, allowing them to engage in positive learning, behaviours and friendships both in the classroom and beyond."
