Judi Cranston, children’s composer and founder/director of kindyRock has written a musical creation simply named ‘Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap Song’ which merges her passion for education, fun and cancer prevention in a cool and catchy way. Thanks to NZ On Air funding, with advice and support from the Cancer Society, Judi’s passion is coming to life.
The song, aimed at pre-schoolers and young primary school children, is a fun way to encourage Kiwis to make smart choices this summer. It reminds people to be SunSmart even on a cloudy day and to Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap every day.

In a very real sense, the language we use creates reality. Tom speaks about the specific words we use, and how and when we use them, shape reality for our students for both good and bad.
