The Lions Club of the City of Adelaide is proud to sponsor teachers and staff at local schools to attend the Lions Quest project workshops.
This program has a strong focus on student well-being.
Lions Quest offers a comprehensive Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program that supports the development of happy, healthy and resilient young people who are caring and engaged members of their families, schools and communities. The curriculum materials span nine year levels (Foundation to Year 8) with a Teacher Resource Guide, Program Guide and student and parent materials at each level.
To support schools in their successful delivery of SEL, implementation and evaluation tools are also provided.
Skills for Growing (Foundation to Year 5) and Skills for Adolescence (Years 6 to 8) have been aligned to the Australian Curriculum. They have strong links to strands, sub-strands and key ideas in the Health and Physical Education and Humanities and Social Sciences learning areas and the Personal and Social arena of the cross-curricular General Capabilities.
Lions Quest programs empower teachers to:
- build relationship-centred learning communities with high expectations for behaviour
- use experiential learning approaches that include inclusive and interactive strategies
- include reflection as an integral part of the learning process
- create partnerships with parents and community members to promote personal and social responsibility in young people.
