DRUMBEAT stands for Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes and Thoughts. It is an evidence-based resilience program delivered over ten weeks in a supportive, safe environment. The course caters for up to ten participants and two facilitators using African djembe drums.

DRUMBEAT encourages all participants to have a voice and contribute to conversations. It allows students to discover more about themselves, their community, relationships, their identity and emotional intelligence. It is a fun way to work together to achieve team goals.

DRUMBEAT was made possible through School-Focused Youth Services who generously donated 11 large djembes and funded two of our staff to attend the formal DRUMBEAT facilitator training with Holy Oake. We are proud to deliver DRUMBEAT to students at Rye Primary School as part of our ongoing commitment to our students’ wellbeing.
