Calm Classrooms

With over 11 years of engaging thousands of students and teachers, we are sharing some of our favourite strategies.

What to expect:

In this PD teachers will learn about the importance of mindfulness, for themselves and their students. Techniques will be explored and practised as we recognise their impact towards creating an energised, engaged and focused learning environment.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

It was a very engaging experience for our students, particularly those students typically difficult to engage.

St. Mary's Dandenong

We have a couple of high energy children who were completely engaged in all of the activities. They were open ended and engaging for all abilities and interests. Everything was wonderful - I have recommended you to all of our staff. Thanks!

Fairfield Primary School

Team Building  ~ This is the third year we have booked this incursion for our grade 1&2 and it was brilliant. Mel was amazing. She knew exactly how to run the session. The teachers enjoyed it as well and were able to make many interesting observations. Thanks 

Coburg West Primary School

We used the Billy Cart and Hip Hop incursions as activities for our Year 2 camp day. The kids loved it! The activities were structured, energetic and engaging. The kids slept beautifully that night at the sleep over. Big thanks to Mel and Brent- they were awesome with the kids!

Aspendale Gardens PS

The Prep children had a fantastic session with the variety of toys. Their interaction reinforced the learning areas we were working through, such as movement, materials, texture and so on.
Thank you for an enjoyable and worthwhile session.

Knox Gardens PS

It was extremely well presented and facilitated. My class enjoyed it immensely. Melissa did an absolutely outstanding job.

Gardenvale PS

All extremely well organised. Ryan was enthusiastic and friendly to work with. The activities were engaging and fun whilst promoting teamwork and curriculum links.

Chiltern Primary School

The students loved Brent's presentations. They were thrilled to see him a second time ( 1st time 2 months ago). Not only did he keep the activities and presentation interesting, he also built rapport with the children and even remembered student names from last incursion.

Oakleigh PS

Ryan was terrific, had all of the kids engaged. There were cries from the kids at the end ‘that it was the best excursion ever’

Alphington Primary School

Brent was a fantastic incursion coach today. All of our teachers reported he was enthusiastic and responsive to our students. He explained things really well and created a really enjoyable and engaging day for our students. They loved the day. Thank you!
