ROCKET

Responsible, Optimistic, Confident Kids, Empathetic, Thinkers

ROCKET (Responsible Confident Kids, Empowering Through Social Skills), provides children with hearing loss a safe environment to explore and share their feelings and emotions. The program aims to address a variety of age-appropriate themes including communication, confidence, leadership, self-esteem, anger management, problem solving, trust, and co-operation.

 

The children participate in challenging and educational activities such as yoga, obstacle courses and musical therapy with the activities being conducted by experienced workshop facilitators.

ROCKET is also aligned with the National Australian Curriculum (ACARA) assisting students to develop communication, advocacy and resilience in relation to their hearing loss.
