SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Amrita is excited about her work in schools, as are the teachers and students' that participate in them.

Adolescence is one of the biggest evolutionary growth processes in our lives.

Everything in the child is bring rearranged and transformed changing the child into a young adult.

This can be confusing for some students. Relationships with family, peers and teachers all undergo major changes.

For some young people sitting still in a classroom is challenging enough with out all the other stresses involved in growing up - changing body, emotional turmoil, the pressure to perform, to know what we are doing and where we are going.

Sometimes the pressures of growing up bear down on the young person. Preparation for every phase of the changes at this time is valuable. If we can allow time for issues they are facing to be discussed the process of growing up can be made much easier. For some children the changes begin around 10 years old and continue at varying degress of intensity into their twenties.


Amrita offers workshops for children around ten years old and upwards.  The workshops are designed to support students to deal with what is going on for them on many levels.

She offers talks and seminars that can include the whole of your school community. The creates a wholistic approach - making it possible for students, parents and teachers to explore topics not often openly talked about with young people.

All Amrita's programs are experiential - through story, sharing, questionnaires, drawing and sometimes drama and movement.

In-service courses for teachers and Youth Workers

I thought Amrita was perfect, warm, and open, accepting of student, their ideas and their language. The activities seemed to bring into the open what the groups needed at that time. It was pleasant to see the children so open, free, happy and relaxed.
