Learning and living Positive Education

How can Positive Education transform your teaching, your school and your life? This four-day immersion focuses on personal transformation through teaching practical skills that the science of positive psychology has shown can have a significant and lasting impact on wellbeing.

FEEDBACK FROM EDUCATORS

“In a word, this course is transformational - I enjoyed every moment of the experience; learning from the presenters, sharing experiences with the other participants and the additional, well planned activities. So well organised and professionally presented, Discovering Positive Education has opened the door to a whole new perspective on teaching and living for me. “

House Leader, Geelong High School

 "This was the best four days. From beginning to end, it was well thought out.  The format of the course followed a sensible pathway and it was well balanced between theory and practical applications including case study examples from Geelong Grammar."  

Angela Moore
Two Wells Primary School

“Absolutely every aspect of the course was excellent. Presenters were 'real', inspirational and passionate. They embodied the variety of messages and learnings from the course. The course content was full of research and evidence-based theory that was applicable to my life and could be extended to my classroom practice. It was highly engaging and thought-provoking. Many thanks!”
