n Child Abuse Research in South Africa - Project awareness : a whole school model for multidisciplinary intervention and support




Project Awareness is based on Life Skills Education within the school curriculum. It was implemented in 1998 in the Pretoria region and ran for a three year period. It involved about 15 000 pupils, 300 teachers, 15 organisations and between 30 and 40 presenters annually. The Project provides a model for schools to establish a nurturing service for learners linked to a permanent support system of teachers, parents and professionals in the community. Some activities are curricular, others extra-curricular and still others are community projects. One intervention or activity automatically leads to more activities. Guidelines are provided to promote a cooperative and inclusive approach and a summary provides a concise overview of what the advantages of the model are.
