Positive Education is the science behind education at its best. It forms the foundation of how a school and its teachers can foster positive change in student learning by focusing on life-long well-being.
It focuses on specific skills that assist staff and students to strengthen their relationships, build positive emotions, enhance personal resilience, promote a growth mind-set and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
The research offers many reasons for adopting a Positive Education approach. It serves as a pathway to increased life satisfaction, promotes learning and creativity, enhances social cohesion, and promotes civic citizenship.
With the implementation of Positive Education across our school we believe we can move student well-being to a new level and equip many of our young men with the skills and strength to confront and conquer the many challenges they will be faced with in the future.
