Fun Learning about the Accepting Road: At Achievement Charter Academy, USA :-)

Ms. Davis\’s class started an exciting lesson series called Open Roads, and the first topic is \”Accepting\”. Her students talk every day about accepting yourself, your mistakes, others, and what others bring to the table! One student is Persian and they celebrate Nowruz which is the welcoming of Spring and a fresh start to the world! Students loved learning about each other through these unique and personal experiences!

Songs for Travelling on the Open Roads

Introducing the first new sing-along song in the series, Songs for Travelling on the Open Roads. The Listening Song will take you on a journey via the Open Roads.

Kim Burns, a talented musician, is behind the creation of the Open Road songs. She has put her heart and soul into the music, which is evident in the quality of the production.

This thoughtfully crafted song has a catchy melody and relatable lyrics that will keep you hooked from start to finish. You will find yourself humming to the catchy hooks and tapping your feet to the infectious beats.

The Open Roads contain growth mindsets and affirmations that increase happiness, resilience, and well-being and improve relationships. The dragsters introduce the Open Roads through games, activities, stories, and posters. They are also available as colouring pages on the Kids Dragtrack page. Why not colour in while listening to the song?

As children learn and practice these new mindsets, they begin to think their way to a better life, using empowering and positive thoughts that give them the confidence to tackle challenges and enjoy life. What better way to reinforce these positive skills than through a catchy tune?

The Songs for Travelling on the Open Roads series of songs will entertain you and inspire you to explore your emotions and experiences. So sit back, relax, and prepare to embark on a musical journey like no other.

The 2024 Mudgeeraba State Special School Car Show allowed each class to create their very own car! As part of our student well-being program, the focus has been on introducing Choice Theory concepts through Get Happier School Car Components.

The Car Components are:

  • Driver’s Seat – Be in charge of your own life!
  • Windscreen  – Keep looking for new ways to see the world!
  • Steering Wheel – Where do you want to go?
  • Engine – Tune the Engine of your life!
  • Dragster Manual – Questions to work out what to do!

On Wednesday, February 21st, every car was proudly displayed in the assembly area, along with an extraordinary cast from our friends at Kustom Cars Gold Coast, who showcased their unique vehicles. 

There was so much fun for the Dragsters at the Car Show!
