Character Education Curriculum

The School of Life’s Character Education Curriculum is an ongoing program that is continually developing in order to offer a wide range of practical and effective skills that is on par with the latest international EQ skills standards. Our current range of modules are applicable to both primary and high school phases. This programme ultimately seeks to advance into all private and government schools in South Africa and Africa. Developing and encouraging our nation’s  children to stop and think before making decisions. To think about their thinking.  

BUILDING SELF ESTEEM

This  was designed to reduce and eradicate Bullying.  We bully by putting others down.  The higher our self-esteem the more we do. When you value yourself and have good selfesteem, you feel secure and worthwhile. You have generally positive relationships with others and feel confident about your abilities. You’re also open to learning and feedback, which can help you acquire and master new skills.

Grade 1 – 4   Building Self-esteem  (Six practical lessons on 30minutes each)

Grade 5 – 7  Building Self esteem ( Six practical lessons of 30 minutes each)

STRESS MANAGEMENT

This was designed to reduce and eliminate stress, worry, anxiety and depression. Stress is our emotional and physical response to pressure.   You have more control of your emotions than you might think. In fact, the simple realization that you’re in control of your choices is the foundation of stress management. Managing stress is all about taking charge: of your thoughts, emotions, schedule, and the way you deal with problems.

Grade 10 – 12  Stress management (Five practical lessons of 45 minutes each)

I had several Neuro-Linguistic Programming sessions with Tracey in 2013 and found her extremely incisive in being able to pinpoint the issues that I should be focusing on.  I benefited immensely from the sessions and they in fact put me on a totally different career and life path.  This has been very beneficial to my personal growth.  I can highly recommend Tracey’s enthusiasm and care for those whom she counsels.
