Friendology

On Friday the 7th of February, St Gabriel’s celebrated the beginning of our Friendology Lessons by creating an artwork which showed off all students unique qualities and interests. The students did a fantastic job creating their artworks. The artwork to the left was completed by Erin who stated "Work boots represent being hard on the outside and soft on the inside. The soul of the shoe represents the rollercoasters and my imperfections.“

Friendology is the best way to introduce students to the skills, language and strategies needed to build strong lasting friendships.  Friendology gives students the "friendship framework' with comprehensive, progressive lessons that serve as the starting point for embedding our school-wide friendship strategies.
