Rabbitohs KARI Wellbeing Program

In 2017, Souths Cares launched a new Wellbeing Program in partnership with the organisation KARI; Australia’s largest Aboriginal foster care agency. The Rabbitohs KARI Wellbeing Program involves interactive workshops delivered by Souths Cares staff and ambassadors which are aligned with the National Curriculum for students in grades 3-6.

Participating schools have the option to choose from a number of workshops, depending on their wellbeing priority areas. Topic areas covered include:

  1. Tackle Bullying- Providing students with the knowledge and skills to address bullying in their schools.  
  2. Cyber Bullying- Helping students stay safe when using the internet and social media, as well as providing practical tools to respond appropriately if they are bullied online.
  3. Get Moving- Emphasizes the importance of physical activity and practical ways students can increase their daily exercise, whilst also promoting inclusion, respect and teamwork.
  4. Healthy Relationships- Teaches students about how Empathy, Respect and inclusion can positively influence relationships. 

In 2018, 35 individual Primary Schools and over 8500 students completed the Souths Cares program and we would like to acknowledge the schools who participated in the program in 2018:
