Big Feelings Tractor Trek
Promoting Positive Mental Health in AotearoaNorthland
We are excited to announce the Tractor Trek is back again!
Rather than Bluff to Cape Reinga every two years, we are doing smaller treks in different areas supporting the school mental health presentations by Cat Levine - the Big Feelings School Tour.
These school talks including the giant blue zorb and mood cube were given rave reviews from the School Principals during the March 2020 Trek, with the common message that every school in New Zealand should have this presentation.
So that's our goal!
A mini trek is visit 5 Otorohanga and Te Kuiti schools, with Cat doing 13 school presentations to nearly 1,000 children!
February 2021 we are touring Northland with a fleet of 17 tractors, 2 humvees, world war 2 jeep, Postman pat van, and even a tank BBQ. Our goal is to visit 20+ schools, with 40+ presentations to 6,000 children!
In 2 weeks Cat aims to do 40 presentations at 20 schools, speaking to over 5,000 children.
Schools can be as small as 9 children, or over 500 children.
After the 25 minute presentation on "Big Feelings" we give each child a Mood Cube, as a way for them to develop emotional literacy and empathy, and learning how to talk about their feelings.
Our tractor drivers and support crew not only take 2 weeks off work, but they also pay for their own accommodation, and expenses along the way.
Would you partner with us by sponsoring a child, a class or a school so each child can receive a Mood Cube to help talk about their feelings, building empathy and resilience?
1 child = $2.50
1 class = $75
1 school = $500
(based on the average of 30 children per class, and 200 children per school)
