Why Invest in PEEC?

As educators, we are all passionate about enhancing the wellbeing of the students in our care. With 26% of young people in Australia experiencing mental health problems, everyone in the field of education would agree that there is a need for preventative measures that empower and equip students to deal with the growing complexity of the world today.

Our vision is to help schools place wellbeing at the heart of education, and our curriculum seeks to address the needs of both teachers and students within the context of each school. Our flexible curriculum is designed to save teachers time and can, therefore, reduce stress. Our hope is that PEEC will improve the wellbeing of both the students and the staff at your school.

We’d like to think that by the time our students graduate, after engaging in explicit Positive Education curriculum from Early Learning through to Year 12, we’ve helped to shape well-rounded young adults who are well-equipped for life. However, there are a number of wellbeing curriculums available, so why should you choose ours?

Based on Science

Our curriculum content is firmly based on the science of wellbeing, underpinned by research in the fields of Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.

Developmentally Appropriate

Teach concepts and activities that are developmentally appropriate for the social and emotional development of children at different ages and stages. We have created a Developmental Scope and Sequence that describes a logical and sequential continuum for students’ understanding.

Curriculum Mapping

Our curriculum aligns with the IB programme (PYP, MYP and DP), Early Years Learning Framework, Social and Emotional Learning and the Australian Curriculum. This means these frameworks complement our curriculum, rather than compete with it.

Scientific Summaries

Need to refresh your understanding of ‘Resilience’ or ‘Flow’? Our one-page summaries condense key research into an easy-to-read guide so you can feel well-equipped to teach the content with confidence.

Flexible Lessons

Lesson delivery and timing is completely flexible, as the lessons aren’t scripted and activities don’t include mandated timing. You can use the Teaching Tools provided to easily change activities, and you can also leave out activities or opt to extend them, based on the students in your class.

Flexible Topics

Each learning opportunity can be taught as a stand-alone lesson. This means that you’re able to teach our Enrichment Modules (topics) in whatever order makes the most sense for your particular context.

Extra Content

Use our ‘Boost It!’™ option as a take-home activity or to expand the lesson so that, in combination with all the activities provided, each lesson easily becomes two!

Save Time

The legwork has been done for you! With the equivalent of over 580 lessons (in the full version from Early Learning-Year 12) already prepared, you can focus your time and energy on your students, rather than on curriculum creation.

Bonus Material

Although our curriculum is hands-on and interactive in nature, we do provide worksheets and scaffolds that can be used as part of your lessons.

Extra Resources

Need a great picture book on the topic of ‘Mindsets’? Our curriculum appendix includes a number of helpful resources, including an extensive list of children’s literature that can be used across our different Enrichment Modules.

Assessment Opportunities

Use the included assessment opportunities to gauge students’ understanding through formative and summative assessments.

Complementary Resources

Want to energise your class, enhance positive emotions, encourage positive relationships or help your students to be more centred and calm? We have a range of affordable, complementary resources that are designed to enhance the delivery of our curriculum, such as our ‘Brain Breaks’ and ‘Mindful Moment’ pocketbooks.

Our curriculum has been trialled not only across all our campuses, but in government and non-government schools both in Australia and around the world. These teachers have used their collective practice wisdom to help mould and shape PEEC into what it is today
