EMBEDDING CHARACTER STRENGTHS

Knowing and utilising what is right with you

Knowing and utilising your own strengths and the strengths of those around you can transform your school and your teaching practice. 

Every day we act using our character strengths: saying hello to students walking by (kindness), picking up rubbish in the yard (leadership) or thanking a colleague for their help (gratitude). Character strengths form a central part of  our Geelong Grammar School Positive Education model because using these capacities helps us to flourish, overcome challenges and nurture our relationships.

Our one-day course explores the language and framework of the VIA Character Strength classification, enabling you to more deeply understand, use and implement these resources in your school and improve wellbeing among students and teachers. 

LEARNING ACTIVITIES:

  • Learn about the VIA Character Strengths classification
  • Gain ideas on how character can be learned, practiced and cultivated
  • Explore examples of how character strengths can be used to enhance teaching and learning across your school
  • Receive a range of character strength applications that can be easily implemented in the classroom

You will receive a booklet that includes a research summary, examples and activities to support your learning about Character Strengths.
