Fostering Compassion & Respect
Fostering compassion and respect for all living beings lies at the heart of our resources. Students develop reverence for the natural world, respect for themselves and others and a sense of responsibility to make a positive impact in the world.
Building Crucial Skills
ThinkKind resources build essential skills and behaviours in primary students, including social responsibility, inquisitiveness, critical thinking and social capability. Students develop knowledge and understanding of the world around them, as well as their place in it.
Aligned to the Curriculum
Our resources are easy for teachers to use across multiple learning areas. All resources are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and address the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions outlined in the general capabilities.
