Media story: Wellington Times and Western Magazine. December 2nd 2019, Taylor Jurd
The Positive Living Skills team is delighted to gain some media coverage for our Western NSW outback road trip, where PLS Founder, Cath Shaw, and PLS Early Childhood Specialist Hailey Chant visited Early Learning Centre communities who are now benefiting from the Positive Living Skills initiative thanks to Funding support from the Western NSW Primary Health Network.
Under the funding, 10 Early Learning Services including Bright Beginnings (Forbes), Menindee Children’s Centre, Brewarrina Mobile Children’s Service, Wellington Community Children’s Centre, Bourke and District Childrens Centre and Childcare, Gidgee Preschool (Weilmoringle), Coonamble Family Strengthening Service, and Alma Budglie Preschool and Happy Day Preschool (Broken Hill) will now all gain access to the Positive Living Skills Early Childhood Wellbeing program, giving each service a range of pre-prepared learning experiences with matching resources, all designed to support children, educators and families to build long term habits for emotional wellbeing.
The Positive Living Skills Wellbeing programs have already been successfully embraced in Primary Schools in Broken Hill, Menindee, and Wellington, and Teachers and Principals in these schools are excited to see how the expansion of this initiative and additional support will flow through the communities.
Principal of Wellington Public School Darryl Thompson is very happy to see the Positive Living Skills Initiative expand. ‘Wellington Public School started implementing the Positive Living Skills Primary School Wellbeing program across the whole school in Term 2 and I am very happy to say that the program is definitely living up to its name. It’s wonderful to see the Positive Living Skills initiative expand further into the Wellington Community so that more families can benefit from the positive influence the program provides.’
We are looking forward to supporting more communities around Australia with the Positive Living Skills initiative - more news on that to come!
Until next time,
The PLS team
