The Secret Agent Society (SAS) is a breakthrough program for children aged between 8 and 12 years that teaches social skills in a fun group setting. SAS
engages children with its espionage-themed games and eye-catching resources. Children learn how to recognise and manage their own feelings, cope with
change, detect other people's emotions, talk and play with others and deal with bullying. It features an animated 'secret agent' computer game as well
as parent and teacher resources and information sessions to encourage children to use their new skills at home and at school. At the end of the program,
the junior detectives will graduate as a 'secret agent', armed with the social and emotional tools they need to continue their work in the 'real world'.
SAS is a fun, small group program which helps children learn how to feel happier, calmer, and braver! For further information about the program, and
