Unicorns Bring Message of Magic and Hope

Paula and Jodie (trained mental health workers) from the Unicorn Project visited the Year 3 classes to promote conversations and strategies around mental health and the need to support each other.

The symbol of the unicorn allows students to remember to believe in hope, magic, dreams, possibilities and empowerment, all of which are an important part of a well balanced childhood.  Students were given a little take home pack reflecting the strategies they learned to share with their family.

Students decorated and named their unicorn (who will continue to live at school) and they were encouraged to remember their key phrase with actions, as shown in this photo, “YOU ROCK!”

    What a fantastic concept – I’d love a unicorn in the kid’s music room and then all our classes could decorate it !
