The Senior Phase COOL TO BE ME curriculum addresses the age-appropriate themes of identity and leadership. In order to build a positive self-image founded in resilient self- esteem, self-worth and self-respect, a child must explore and appreciate their unique character, passions and beliefs and build a meaningful value system.
The COOL TO BE ME: IDENTITY Grade 6 programme guides them on this journey through fun, experiential learning that not only brings about this critical self-discovery, but also a deeper sense of mutual respect within the peer group.
Peer group leadership
We build on this in Grade 7 with our COOL TO LEAD Fluid Leadership workshop that empowers these young leaders to create an environment of individuality, mutual respect and collaboration that allows for the fluid movement between individual members of the group stepping up to lead, or using their power to follow, depending on what type of characteristics and intelligence each situation requires. This allows the peer group to create an environment that is supportive, fun, creative and effective.
COOL TO BE ME
The COOL TO BE ME programme explores the crucial developmental challenge of this age group: identity. Understanding and accepting one’s identity is essential for the healthy development of resilient self-esteem, self-worth and the fostering of mutual respect within the peer group that encourages good decision making skills and positive attitudes.
COOL TO BE ME is made up of fun, experiential exercises, games and discussions. It can be taught as SEL content for Life-Skills, Personal and Social Well-being (PSW).
