Kayne and Nancy are on a mission to spread the word that prejudice is just not cool. Meanwhile Takaya and Steph play a game of wheelchair rugby to challenge their own perceptions.
Nancy and Kayne have run away and joined the circus to face their fears of failure. Will Kayne master the trapeze? And how good is Nancy on a unicycle? Steph and Takaya's Failure Boot Camp ends in failure so now they have to ask for help.
It's game on for the MGBA crew as they go head to head in a game of bubble soccer. Takaya creates some self-esteem armour while Kayne catches up with the most confident dude he knows.
Kayne embarks on an emotional journey with a young girl struggling to cope with the loss of her grandmother. But tears turn to joy with the arrival of a surprise guest. It's a musical celebration guaranteed to tug on the heartstrings.
Puberty is an experience we all have to go through: it's awkward, sweaty, pimply, hairy and totally confusing, and it's about to happen to Kayne and the MGBA gang all over again. The Puberty Patrol Unit is a team of six teenagers who are on a crazy mission - to take our MGBA presenters back to their teenage years. They've devised a series of revelatory tests and challenges, and it's no prank!
Social media is an important part of our lives, so tonight the MGBA gang is out to uncover the benefits of social media, as well as all of the pitfalls and hidden traps lurking on the net.
It's the one word that sends shivers up Kayne's spine - DIVORCE - and he's not alone. Around 50,000 young Australians experience divorce every year, so the MGBA crew has decided to tackle the D word head-on.
Using a variety of storytelling devices and approaches, My Great Big Adventure is a kids lifestyle show that provides a toolkit for challenging situations. Set out and about in the real world, this is a show that tackles the issues. Life is one epic adventure and in any Great Big Adventure there are fun bits and hard bits. The cool bits are a breeze, but what about the tough times?
During the second episode of MGBA, the team head back to school. Kayne embarks on an emotional rollercoaster ride in search of the best ways to fit into a new environment; meanwhile Steph turns schoolyard private eye. P.I. Bendixsen's mission is to track down a frenemy. But what is a frenemy? How do you find one? And what should you do if you discover your best friend is one?
During this Australia Day sneak peek, Kayne Tremills returns to ABC3 with another exciting series of My Great Big Adventure. This time he's brought along a few friends to help him out - Steph, Takaya and Nancy. During episode one, Boyfriends and Girlfriends, the MGBA team breaks into a collective nervous mess at the thought of exploring the secret world of boyfriends and girlfriends - the awkward banter, the first kiss, the crushes that just won't quit and of course the R word - rejection.
In a world where fitting in is paramount, it's hard for kids to find themselves and express their individuality in a safe space. We tackle cultural identity, sexual identity, adoption, cliques, and belonging to help kids ask questions to discover who they really are, and who they really want to be.
Kayne Tremills is back for another exciting series of My Great Big Adventure. My Great Big Adventure drops in on a group of 10 to 14-year-olds discussing mental health, with no grown-ups around. These young Australians share their personal insights into mental health and discuss the big questions. My Great Big Adventure screens during ABC's 'Mental As', a week-long initiative in support of Mental Health which aims to encourage Australians to start talking about mental illness, and to donate to mental health research.
More and more kids are now experiencing higher levels of depression, anxiety and stress due to busier lifestyles and family dysfunction - so in these circumstances, along with the humdrum of everyday life, where can they find their joy? We show kids how to grow, create and develop strategies to identify what happiness mean to them, and how to apply it to their lives by creating an existence of happiness for themselves and others!
While we know disability hinders people in certain ways, we can also celebrate the fact that it enhances them in others. Being disabled is not something to fear or shy away from - amazing potential is present in all of us, no matter what our capabilities! We help kids understand disability and what it means for people, and to discover the great achievements made by our community - both as individuals and as groups.
Body image is how we view our bodies - and while children are being constantly bombarded with images and subliminal messages everyday about how we 'should' look, and what a 'good' body looks like - it's no wonder they worry about their appearance. But since our body shapes are largely determined before we are even born thanks to genetics, that side of things is largely out of our control. But what we can control is how we take care of our bodies, how we respect ourselves and how we celebrate the uniqueness of our individuality.
The schoolyard is a competitive place for young people - in the classroom, on the sporting field, at social events - kids are continually comparing themselves to others and feeling they don't measure up. But nobody is perfect, and we're all good at different things. So instead of trying to emulate someone else, we encourage kids to explore their own skills and areas of expertise, and do what they enjoy. The perception of success is different for everyone, but we show them how to measure their success and potential against themselves and nobody else!
Stress is infiltrating the existence of kids everywhere. A master of disguise, it camouflages itself in the major parts of their lives - academic expectations, social relationships, family issues and extra-curricular activities. We help them discover what stress actually is, how to recognise the difference positive and negative stress, and how to manage it to lighten and already hefty load.
Frenemies. BFFs, Besties. Whatever you call them, what does it really mean to be a true friend? With young people pushing boundaries, entering new social territories and leaving the safety nets of their parents - friends become their new safety net. We help them make sure they know what a real friend is, what a real friend isn't, and how to a good one in return.
