Social and Emotional Learning

The Berry Street Educational Model

At St Kevin’s our staff are trained in the Berry Street Educational Model. This model provides strategies and resources that can be used to teach social and emotional learning.

The program focuses on the five following modules:

  1. Body
  2. Relationship
  3. Stamina
  4. Engagement
  5. Character

Circle Time

Circle time is a strategy that is used regularly to problem solve a specific issue or promote accountability, coping skills, emotional literacy and self reflection. Games and discussion starters are often used. In these circles, all stakeholders have the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings.

Bully Zero Australia Foundation
