Highway Heroes Program

Orana is proud to be a school that explicitly teaches a comprehensive Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program: BEST Program 4 Kids' Little Highway Heroes (K-PP) and Highway Heroes (Year 1- Year 6). This is a comprehensive, active teaching curriculum that introduces social, emotional and learning skills for children. SEL is the process of acquiring the skills to recognise and manage emotions, develop care and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions and handle challenging situations effectively. These skills are fundamental to a child's mental health and ability to learn. Please view the resources to see how you can reinforce the same language and thinking at home with your child.
