Supporting Your Child Through the Ups and Downs of Friendship!

Do you often find yourself at a loss for advice when your children come to you with their friendship issues? Don’t worry, you are not alone.

In the Primary school in Term 1, all the children are participating in the URSTRONG Friendship program.

URSTRONG provides simple but meaningful language and skills to open up a dialogue with children, explicitly teaching them how to develop healthy friendships and manage conflict in a positive way, helping them flourish.

We are inviting you to jump on board with us to learn more about the program, learn the same language & strategies being taught in the classroom, and the common language of friendship we will be using.

URSTRONG is all about empowering children with friendship skills while providing the adults in their lives, both parents and teachers, with a common language to support them.

Children learn what is normal in a friendship, the difference between healthy and unhealthy friendships, and how to stand up for themselves with kid-friendly concepts.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing more about each aspect of the program and ways in which you can ways in which we can work together in sharing and reinforcing the common language of Friendship here at GCC.
