Welcome to the parents page

Welcome to the parents page for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Schools Program.

Over the coming school terms, your child will be participating in a range of learning activities designed to support, inspire and empower them over a range of topics. Your child will develop a strong sense of individual and community wellbeing, be inspired by Australian cricketers and strong women worldwide, and build their enterprise, collaboration and project management skills alongside their class members.

There are four campaigns within the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Schools Program, they are as follows:
  1. Personal Wellbeing: In the first unit of work your child will focus on understanding a strong sense of wellbeing by investigating the five domains of wellbeing.
  2. Inspiring Women & Girls: In the second unit of work, your child will be learning about women and girls around the world that are inspirational, and then utilise this learning to showcase the stories of these women and girls.
  3. Community Wellbeing: In the third unit of work, your child will expand their earlier understanding of wellbeing by considering wellbeing in the community and how they can affect change for the better.
  4. Build Your Own T20 World Cup: In the final unit of work your child will work together with their peers to create their own ICC T20 World Cup. This unit of work will develop your child's abilities in project management, group work, collaboration and enterprise.
Personal Wellbeing
In the first unit of work your child will focus on understanding a strong sense of wellbeing by investigating the five domains of wellbeing. Students will explore a range of ways they can support their mental and physical health and develop their understanding of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and actions.
  1. Model talking about your own feelings and create an environment where children feel safe and supported to identify their emotions.
  2. For younger children, help them select appropriate language to describe how they feel and link this to a physical feeling they can identify in the future. For example; ‘hot’ hands and eyes might mean frustration, ‘fizzy’ tummy might mean excitement.
  3. Support children in developing their interests and hobbies. Try to encourage physical activity as well as a creative interest.
  4. Model healthy choices and encourage regular exercise and quality sleep, fresh air and sunshine, social activity and good nutrition.
  5. As a family, complete the Personal Wellbeing Plan and discuss how each family member could better support their wellbeing across the five areas. Talk about what you do now, and what you’d like to do in the future.

Inspiring Women and Girls
In the second unit of work, your child will be learning about women and girls around the world that are inspirational, and then utilise this learning to showcase the stories of these women and girls. This unit empowers students to affect change in their daily lives and become the next generation of trailblazers through an in-depth study of the qualities of inspirational women and their actions. Students will explore inspirational female figures throughout history, in cricket, in daily life and within pop culture.

Tips to support your child through this unit:
  1. Discuss the different people you find inspirational and why.
  2. Encourage discussions about your child’s favourite book and movie characters; how have they influenced others? Have they done anything that could be regarded as inspirational?
  3. Talk to your child about their future plans. What problems can they see in the world and how would they solve them?
  4. Model positive and encouraging language when talking about other people that highlights their achievements and unique abilities.
  5. Support your child in choosing an inspirational person to research in more detail. Use the Inspiring Person Research Questions to scaffold your research.
