TLG (Transforming Lives for Good) is an early intervention program where children who would benefit from a little help are provided with a trained coach who will work with them for an hour a week, for a minimum of one school term.
The coaching sessions are designed to be fun, creative and practical. The coaching takes place in school, during school hours. It aims to tackle behavioural difficulties as they emerge; providing time for the child to be coached through their struggles and encouraged in their abilities.
Giving children the opportunity to understand their feelings, look at coping strategies, explore the choices they have and their related consequences.
We currently have two active coaches in the local Riverbank Primary School with others currently being trained and looking to get involved.
