Using our 60min Secret Of Castle Alphabet show as a springboard we'll explore the themes of self-awareness, kindness, compassion and generosity with your students. We'll get your kids thinking about their own uniqueness, exploring strength through diversity, considering the importance of good choices and participating in the power of creative collaboration. Using games, group and individual challenges, storytelling and movement activities, we'll focus on imagining simple ways each student can make a difference in their world: at home, at school and in the community. For multi-days our residence will challenge students to come up with sustainable ideas and initiatives, to carry beyond our time in residency, that will have students excited about practical ways they can make a difference in the world around them. In a faith based context for Christian and Catholic schools, we'll use many of the activities listed above, but we'll also reinforce timeless truths from scripture that teach us how to approach life with a Biblical worldview. Available in one, three and five days residencies. (For 3-day and 5-day Residency pricing, contact HeARTbeat or ArtStarts)
