Year 9 Choices Programme

Choices is a positive relationship programme which encourages students to develop useful and positive life skills as well as good study habits as they transition and settle into secondary school life. Choices encourages students to make personal goals for their secondary school journey ahead and helps equip them to make positive choices along the way.

This Programme includes workshops covering:

  • Born to Play – recognising gifts and talents and encouraging students to use them
  • Dreams – setting goals & planning to work towards them
  • Positive Talk – how our words have have a powerful impact
  • Values – understanding the importance of self-worth & the value of others
  • Ripple Effect - how the choices we make now can determine our future


What people had to say about Choices

I thought that the Choices Year 9 programme was hugely beneficial for my students. They seemed to really enjoy the activities which required the students to cooperate and work together. Many of the values and themes that were covered by the programme aligned with values covered at school, in particular leadership.

The activities were fun and engaging which resulted in high participation. The students made comments on how friendly and approachable the staff were. Very effective programme. Teacher.

It was really eye opening for me about the common things that'll stop a person from achieving their goals, but it also helped me realise that I can overcome my obstacles. I ENJOYED IT ALL! Student.
