Two members of Royal Far West’s Community Recovery Team visited Lismore South Public School and Lismore South Public School Ngulliboo Jarjums Preschool in the northern rivers region from the 7th-11th of August 2023 to deliver the following:
Support for children:
- 3x Birdies tree shared book reading and activity sessions at the primary school
- 2x Birdies tree shared book reading and activity session at the preschool
- The groups support children who have experienced change, with an emphasis on changes following a natural disaster.
- The team also met with school executives, teachers and SLSO’s (School learning support officer) to deliver a professional learning workshop on emotional regulation and to discuss any areas they would like to learn more about.
We are looking forward to a continuing partnership with Lismore South public school and preschool over telecare and on future outreach visits.
