Rangitoto College, generously supported by our PTA, is hosting Darren Pereria (founder Success Integrated) to speak at Rangitoto College on the topic 'Road to Resilience'. Darren is an exceptional speaker and after initially being involved with life and business coaching, he now spends most of his time running study, resilience, motivation, careers & leadership seminars for secondary school communities here & around the world. He is Australian based and travels to NZ a couple of times a year for speaking engagements. Darren will cover a variety of topics and deliver a toolkit which will support parenting a teenager including:
  • developing resilience in your child, becoming adaptive and dealing with current challenges
  • using evidence-based, positive psychology interventions and cognitive behavioural techniques to sustainably manage depression and deal with negative thinking
  • rectifying poor sleep habits exacerbating mental health issues
  • dealing with disappointment, setbacks and failure
  This session is not ticketed and parents/caregivers from our school community and from our Mid Bays Kāhui Ako/school community are welcome to attend.
