One strategy toward containing the COVID-19 outbreak in Western Australia was the recommendation that, if possible, students should remain at home. In response to this directive Imagined Futures designed the ‘At Home Workbook’ in collaboration with Lakeland Senior High School. The workbook was created with the aim of supporting students at Lakeland Senior High School during isolation. The focus was to create an opportunity for all students, in particular those that do not have access to internet or computers at home, to be engaged in fun and educational activities, that aim to promote pro social behaviours and to benefit mental and physical well being.
The Youth Initiative working group, a sub group of Imagined Futures, aims to keep kids engaged in schools by supporting leadership, wellbeing and emotional resilience programs in schools, along with projects such as the ‘At Home Workbook’ that can cater for diverse support needs of students and schools. The workbook is freely available and can be accessed here – AT HOME WORK BOOK final
