SCHOOL STUDENTS

GOLD MEDAL GOALS  $500

At school we learn reading writing and arithmetic,  but what about important life skills such as goal setting and self leadership?  As a Paralympic athlete  Marayke has been setting goals and  has ticked off all the major items on her ” bucket list” at the age of just 34 and is a relatable role model for students, with 15 years presenting in schools.

She loves working interactively with school students around the concepts of goal setting using the exact techniques she used to win three Paralympic medals and break a world record.

With extensive experience working with students of all ages Marayke customises the presentation to the age group of the students. For example high school students may go into much more depth creating an action plan to achieve the students actual goals for this year.

This goal setting workshop is an excellent activity for year 12 students to plan for life after school.

Younger primary school students may simply hear Marayke’s life story, how she achieved her goals and have an opportunity to do questions and answers. for younger students for example Marayke brings along wheelchair Barbie to talk about acceptance of difference.

Workshops include interactive sessions with worksheets and activities as well as Marayke is sharing her inspirational story with the group.

d IS ability Awareness workshop

Investment $500

In this interactive session  Marayke  tackles all important subjects of embracing diversity and difference be it  disability,  gender,  ethnicity  or other areas in life by challenging the students to find anyone else in the room exactly the same as them.  sharing her story that growing up in a pink wheelchair as the only student with a disability in her school Marayka always knew she was different but difference doesn’t need to equal bad in fact disability can equal ability…. she never wanted to be ‘normal’  she wanted to be extraordinary.  Marayke teaches students that it is what makes us different that makes us unique…  helping to combat bullying and build self-esteem.

This workshop can work particularly well where there are students with a disability in the school but is equally valuable for all students.  After speaking about her own experiences and showing a video the class breaks into practical activities.

Marayke also talks about the Paralympics  and her experiences as an athlete as well as as a child growing up ‘ different.’

PRACTICAL LEARNING

During this segment students will participate in an activity which gets them to think differently about how they use their body and can adapt to physical challenges- leading to a new appreciation for people with disabilities.They will be challenged to accomplish an everyday task in a new way and experience a sense of achievement upon completing it.

Practical Activities

Students will play various paralympic sports and be introduced to their ability to use alternative senses or body parts just as people with disabilities do every day- for example while playing goal ball with a blindfold on students will learn to use the sense of sound rather than sight.
