During fortnightly Connections lessons, students work together with their peers and Homebase teachers, engaging in age appropriate activities aimed at developing coping skills and strategies to equip them for life at school and beyond.
Connections lessons are specifically designed to foster self-belief, self-understanding and resilience.
