ROCKET Expression of Interest Form
What is ROCKET?
ROCKET is a one-day, interactive course aimed at primary aged children (year 5 and 6) to enable them to become resilience champions within their schools. The role of the group will be to look at what the school already does to promote resilience, but also where the areas for improvement are regarding resilience, and how the resilience champions can improve on these. Throughout the course we make reference to resilient ralph – so for those schools who have received the ROAR Training, the ROCKET Course really compliments and works alongside ROAR, both of which have been developed by the MYA RAISE Team.
What does ROCKET stand for?
ROCKET stands for Resilient, Open, Caring, Kind, Equal, Togetherness. When developing ROCKET, we consulted and trialled with primary schools in Liverpool to ensure the course would be useful and beneficial to schools!
Who can it be delivered to?
The course can be delivered to up to a class of children, and is delivered in a full days training that fits in with your school day. We recommend the course being delivered to year 5 and 6, and you can target a specific year group or have a mix across year groups.
The course is split into 5 separate workshops:
1) What is mental health?
2) What is resilience and when am I resilient, and who helps me?
3) What makes a good resilience champion? The importance of kindness and being a good role model
4) Exploring scenarios, such as loneliness and bullying and the impact on mental health and things such as sleep (these can be tailored to your school)
5) ROCKET Voice – launching the ROCKET in your school and enabling children to have a voice around spreading kindness in their school and how this is done
How can I get the children ROCKET Trained in my school?
The course is free for primary schools in Liverpool! If your school is outside of Liverpool, please still fill out the form and we'll be in touch to discuss further.
