WHAT IS POSITIVE EDUCATION
Positive Education brings together the science of Positive Psychology with best practice teaching to encourage and support individuals, schools and communities to flourish. We refer to flourishing as a combination of ‘feeling good and doing good’. Positive Education focuses on specific skills that assist students to strengthen their relationships, build positive emotions, enhance personal resilience, promote mindfulness and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Through teaching these valuable life skills, Geelong Grammar School provides its students with an increased capacity to learn effectively, as well as offering them a strong foundation on which they can build a successful life.
The Institute of Positive Education is a ground-breaking initiative by Geelong Grammar, dedicated to improving student and staff wellbeing. The Institute has the dual purpose of nurturing Positive Education at the School and assisting the growth of Positive Education throughout Australia and the world.
