Social/Emotional Learning


Zones
All students at Wongan Hills District High School participate in The Zones of Regulation® curriculum (or “The Zones” for short), which are lessons and activities designed by Leah Kuypers, licensed occupational therapist, to help people gain skills in the area of self-regulation.

 

The lessons and learning activities are designed to help the students recognise when they are in the different zones as well as learn how to use strategies to change or stay in the zone they are in. In addition to addressing self-regulation, the students will continue to gain an increased vocabulary of emotional terms, skills in reading other people’s facial expressions, perspective about how others see and react to their behaviour, insight into events that trigger their behaviour, calming and alerting strategies, and problem solving skills.

 

We run dedicated activities for The Zones of Regulation each fortnight as part of the Health curriculum, these vary from 10 minute lessons up to 1-hour lesson depending on the content being taught. These lessons are tailored to the different year levels however the critical content being delivered is essentially the same. This way all Wongan Hills students are getting the same information in the same time frame.
