This week I’m running a special one hour presentation for fifty grade five students at a primary school.
It’s part of the Pozitive Kidz are happy kidz program I run, and in this session the emphasis will be on leadership, self esteem and confidence.
All the skills I teach are based on Tai Chi. I simply adapt them to suit the various age groups I work with – from 5 years old to 103 years old!
As usual, I’ll have my props with me for the students to emphasise key points – Hammy Hamster, Spooky and Monkey Brain. I’ll also run a short conversation segment (based on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry) to highlight positive leadership experiences and skills.
To finish the session, I’ll use my favourite toy, ‘Jacques the Shark’, which always gets the students excited and laughing.
And I’ll bring my teachers’ aide to help – a two metre long Tai Chi staff. 🙂
