The countdown for the books going into the schools is on! We've had such a wonderful response so far but after our latest status update using this tile we've been really blown away by the support from the families that will receive the books. We've had lots of emails and requests for the books for other parts of the country and for 4 year olds transitioning to school. Lots of teachers have been in touch to check their schools are getting the books and we couldn't be happier about that. The relationship between a child and their teacher is often under-valued but its usually a secure and attached relationships that children really rely on. We've got our thinking caps on for ways we can thank all the amazing teachers of Canterbury for playing such a large role in helping families and communities to hold it all together through these post quake years, through rebuilds, and house moves, school merges and school closures, EQC battles and flooding, they're truly amazing!
We all worry and feel anxiety at times in our lives. Anxiety can impact on children and their families in many ways. The Worry Bug Project seeks to support parents and teachers to recognise and address mild to moderate anxiety.
