Workshops

The 3 day workshop is the most comprehensive Rock & Water experience.  Experiencing the 3 day workshop provides each participant with an intensive overview, the philosophy and theory, learning many games, exercises, and best practice strategies to deliver the Rock & Water program.  A true diamond of the program and key feature is it’s not an A to Z program. Once you have completed the training, you can tailor your own personalised program to suit your need. The program can be shaped by you, your school or organisation to suit your needs and focus upon specific outcomes (e.g. social skills, bullying, class cohesion, anti-violence, confidence development, goal setting, etc.), or your program can cover all of these over time.

The skills are developed through the use of simple physical exercises and games that can be progressively developed over time or in regular short bursts. A Rock and Water session might be timetabled during the week, or used as energisers on a regular basis – it is a flexible, needs-focused program that trained facilitators are free to structure to their requirements.

On completion of the 3 Day Rock and Water Workshop with Tim Brenton, you can then deliver the program – within schools or organisations to students, parents or clients. It does not entitle you to train other service professionals. We highly recommend completing this 3 Day Workshop if you are considering implementing the program in your school or service.

Rock and Water in primary schools focuses on the translation of Rock and Water principles to all grades of primary education and all situations that occur at school on a daily basis.

The manual includes over 120 lessons designed to suit each grade, 80 professional pictures and a full colour lay-out. There are dozens of practical tips and strategies for keeping order, dealing with organisational issues and connecting with the students. The manual will assist the teacher/trainer to improve their skills and maximise the result of each lesson and training. Each lesson is supported by questions that can be used to reflect on that specific exercise. There is also a whole section dedicated to exercises and assignments that can be used to continue the program in the classroom. These exercises are designed to meet each student’s favorite learning style leaving room for creativity and imagination, both for them and the teacher/trainer.

The accompanying manual describes in detail the psychological profile of students in each age group, giving special emphasis to the development of their (social) identity. We have carefully selected new and existing Rock and Water exercises to support students in each stage of their development. This workshop will provide you with new insights and practical material on why each exercise is suited for every student in each grade. You will learn new ways to put Rock and Water to good use in your school.
