We are a group of 13 students + 1 teacher from St. Hilarys Primary School (TP). We want to encourage our fellow G6 students, from other schools as well, to talk about mental health so they know how to deal with a variety sources of stress, be it homework, SSPA (呈分試）, mood swing from puberty and so on. Above all, we want them to know that they are NOT ALONE in their final year at primary level.
Coming up next...
We are very grateful to StoryTaler 說書人 (https://www.storytalerhk.org/) for providing us with professional advice and support. We are going to hold a "Mindful Dreamcatcher Workshop" with 2 of their members in early Feburary. Our students will learn how to make a dreamcatcher amid a mindful process where they can incorporate their personal stories and feelings into the artwork.
We are also going to make a short video on "Worry with me". Through the video, we want to receive more feedbacks from fellow G6 students. We want to know if any aspects of academic, social and family life has recently added to their worries and how they cope with them. We also want to give them tips on "self-care" in the video!
Coming up later...
Having learnt the skills from the above training workshop, we hope to do it together with more G6 students who might display prolonged stress symptoms.
What inspired us?
Our "Empathy" Process : started from self-understanding
Our Initial Outcomes:
- students were dissatisifed with the poor communication with their parents when it came to academic matter.
- students also realised that each person is fighting a battle that the other don't know. While students are burdened by homework and tests, parents are overloaded with parenting and their jobs.
Our "Empathy" Process: continued with understanding the others
What SDGs do we want to address?
What resources do we need ?
- Recruitment of other G6 students
- Free and quality art materials
- Money $$$$$$
We may be young but so ready for our project
and your support! Please back us up!
