Years 3 to 10

This unit asks students to focus inward, thinking about who they are and who they want to be. Thoughts and feelings are explored through reflective activities.

Years 3 to 10

This unit asks students to focus outward, thinking critically and openly about the world they live in and what they can do it make it better. They learn that what happened in the past doesn’t have to define the future and there are always opportunities for growth.

Years 3 to 10

This unit challenges students to learn by experimenting. Using their creative brains, they try new things and build their skills. Best of all, students learn to become comfortable with failure and develop grit by stretching their limits.

More about our partners:

IMAGI-NATION{TV} was created as a response to COVID-19 school closures around the globe but is continuing to hold relevance in the teaching community beyond the pandemic. The daily TV show is broadcast live on the Internet, and it’s a gift for teachers, parents and kids to help make sense of today and imagine tomorrow.

The team at IMAGI-NATION{TV} developed this program to address the problem of how to mentor kids during the school closures. Building on the mentoring program established by Jack Manning Bancroft and the AIME mentoring team, they found a very creative solution. We hope their creativity might inspire you!


AIME is an Imagination Factory that since 2005 has been creating pop-up Imagination Factories on university campuses to unlock the internal narrative and the potential of marginalised kids. In Australia 20,000+ Indigenous youth have experienced AIME’s Imagination Factory, helping to solve one of Australia’s most complex social challenges – Indigenous inequality.

AIME designed a transferrable solution that can work across cultures and borders, in the process building the largest volunteering movement of university students in Australian history. Having scaled and proven the model of mentoring in Australia, AIME has now expanded into 6 countries and has launched IMAGI-NATION{TV} direct to homes.
