About the Event

Our bodies are under so much pressure to fit in. When the world around you tells you to look a certain way, how do you accept the skin you’re in? Psychologist and educator Chris Cheers will discuss the importance of self-acceptance and how to keep your brain and body connected.

This event will be available to watch on this page from 12.30pm on Wednesday 29 May 2024.

About Lunch Orders

While you’re nourishing your body, let us feed your mind. In Term 2, Lunch Orders is delivering a discourse on bodies. How do they work? How can we learn to feel good about them? How can we make space in society for all bodies?

Each serving will open with a 10-minute soapbox from an expert. They will then be joined by The Wheeler Centre’s Youth Programming Manager, Bec Kavanagh, for a Q&A that enriches and expands on their ideas.

Lunch Orders will have you back into the schoolyard with time to spare, and a few extra facts to pack in your lunchbox too.
