Group Sessions

See our Group Sessions

We run a range of school holiday groups for children. All of our groups are designed to be fun, at the same time as building children’s social skills, self-esteem and a “can do” attitude.

Our school holiday groups program will be listed here in Week 6 of each term.

Dungeons and Dragons

“The Mayor of Helmsford has issued a call for help! Brave adventurers are needed to hunt down the nasty thieves who have stolen the town’s most valuable treasure. Will YOU answer the call?”

Join us for an epic quest as our group of brave adventurers work together to solve problems, fight the bad guys, and – hopefully – return the loot and gain their just reward!

Led by the Dungeon Master, and supported by an Occupational Therapist, those brave enough to join the adventure will have the opportunity to build on social and emotional skills, develop confidence, practice conflict resolution and negotiation using both verbal and non-verbal communication. Sharing, teamwork and turn-taking will be encouraged and developed, as will creativity and joint problem solving.

Set in a fantasy medieval world of monsters and magic, the program will utilise a simplified set of Dungeons and Dragons (5th edition) rules. Prior experience or familiarity with Dungeons and Dragons is not required!

This program runs weekly for 10 weeks after school hours.

Age group: 11-16 years
