Beyond Bricks: Lego-Based Play For Schools

Beyond Bricks is Lego® Based Play that uses a 'recovery to discovery' approach to enhance children's overall mental health and wellbeing, now and in the future.

What is Beyond Bricks?

Beyond Bricks is a legacy programme which sees schools fully equipped to deliver a series of interactive workshops aimed to increase the emotional health and wellbeing of Children.

MindWise will work with schools to support the pupils recover and discover new skills to enable them to overcome challenges in their lives, by focusing on the five key aspects of emotional wellbeing as identified by the Education Authority  ‘Emotional Health and Wellbeing Framework.’

  • Coping
  • Self-awareness
  • Motivation
  • Social resilience
  • Self-control

Pupils will take part in a 5 week interactive programme in their school with their own teachers co-facilitating the programme with trained Beyond Bricks Associates. Each pupil will leave with a personalised toolkit to help them cope with all five areas of the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Framework to navigate their future with confidence.

Beyond Bricks is funded by Agnew Group.
