Event description
Cairns ADF kids – help children manage relocation and absence

About this Event

NOTE: This event is only for primary school aged Australian Defence Force children.

ADF kids between the ages of 6 and 11 years in Cairns, who have not yet attended a KidSMART workshop, are invited to register for our KidSMART workshop.

KidSMART is a resilience-based program designed to help kids develop the tools they need to manage the challenges of Defence life and includes discussions about relocation and having a parent absent from home.

This two hour workshop will present the KidSMART mascot, Tyler Turtle, to help kids talk about their feelings. Tyler Turtle will provide kids with some great tips and hints for handling emotion along with relaxation techniques.

Children attending will receive a copy of the Tyler Turtle story book to take home and a participation certificate.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Be sure to register by 22 October 2020. Limited spots are available.

Please note: if you would like assistance deciding if the KidSMART program is suitable for your child, please contact your local Defence Social Worker for guidance.
