Two people contacted me this week asking if I had anything to help explain the role of an ELSA to children. After having a bit of a search on the internet I found that School counselors in America use a ‘First Aid Kit’ to introduce their role.
This kit consists of the following:
- Chocolate bar
- Swimming ring
- Cotton Wool Ball
Each item represent a reminder of an aspect of the job. I have put together an ELSA Presentation that you could perhaps show to children in assembly. I would photograph your kit though and insert your images into the presentation. It will make more sense to them.

Thank you so much to Jill who has shared a photo of her kit! I love it!
