Cool To Be Me Programme

Journey To Emotional Intelligence

Our programmes equip children with the skills needed to manage the complexities, demands and pressures of everyday life.

Who is Bru’Me?

Meet Bru’Me – a character in our stories who along with his friends helps children build positive and resilient self esteem. The stories are child-centred and use characters that children can relate to.

Cool To Be Me Vision

Cool to be Me believes that by enhancing emotional and social competence in the classroom, children’s self-awareness will grow resulting in their ability to consider their own emotions and those of others.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the feedback to the COOL TO BE ME sessions at Springfield last night. It is a fabulous course and my daughter enjoyed it tremendously. Also from the response of the parents I think they felt the same way.” – Springfield parent

“I just wanted to let you know that I've been reading Bouncing Back and the Telling Truth stories to my kids this past week. We've been reading a few chapters each night before going to bed. My son is four and a half and my daughter six and a half and in Grade 1. They have both absolutely LOVED them! We have had very late bedtimes as they've insisted that I keep reading! Even though they are both so young (and I thought too young which is why I hadn't read them the stories until now), they were completely compelled and fascinated! At the end of the each book, they both without any initiation started discussing some of the themes. After the bouncing back story, they both started to talk about some of things they had learnt in the day. From the 'learn the lesson and move on' refrain, my daughter told me that she had learnt that she can tell her friend NO if she doesn't want to do something! What an important thing to learn!” – Nicole, Cape Town
“I would just like to say thank you so much for all you have done for the grade 6 girls through COOL TO BE ME. They are so lucky to have had experienced such profound self-analysis and self-discovery at their age. I think that the work you are doing is so important and the core philosophy of resilient self-esteem is brilliant.” – Springfield parent
