Roxy's school programme

Roxy's school programme is detailed in the guide below but partly consists of a book for children at transition age, when they are moving from primary to secondary school.


It is essentially a story about emotional welbeing but originally was to be about domestic violence.  However, if you are talking to a child about the book it is a story about a dog called Roxy and the experences she has.


It contains chapters which subtly allow a child to empathise with everyday experiences which, through further discussion, allows a child to analyse the experiences, understand them and help to handle the emotional content.  The intention is to allow the child the opportunity to cope with such situations in future in order to protect their welbeing.


The book can be used for parent/carer to engage the subject of mental health with a child.  The exercises open a valuable space for discussion, this is the most important aspect.  Try the sample and you can decided whether to purchase the full workbook.


The book is completed and we are looking for a primary school run a pilot of the programme.  The pilot will take one week and from the feedback and other data corrected we will be able to prove 1. Increased mental health awareness, 2. Reduced Stigma and 3. Increased resilience.


This book is reading homework as part of a schools programme.  The guide details the implentation of the programme which includes details about Roxy's Book.


Assuming our success in achieving our outcomes and Funding permitting we expect to roll this programme out in as many primary schools as possible to support the generations each year.


The Books Final version is below to purchase.  The text has been reviewed by counsellors, a psychologists and mental health professionals for their feedback.


Review: Roxy Says You are Here 


"A book essentially about emotions, its narrative follows a dog, Roxy, and its adventures with family and friends.  With each chapter representing a specific emotion set in an engaging scenario that a child can relate, the book aims to educate children on various feelings and how they can be managed.

Throughout the chapters, specific words are highlighted and these are associated with various emotions felt by different characters.  The meaning of the words is found in a glossary at the back of the book.  

While reading the book to my daughter, we were able to discuss Roxy’s and the other character’s reaction to different situations and circumstances.  The questions from the guide initiated the start of many conversations regarding emotional wellbeing, which I wouldn’t have otherwise had with my 9-year-old daughter.

This book is a good opportunity to delve into the complexities of feelings and emotions in a way which isn’t intrusive to children."
