Positive Education

Positive Education is embedded in our House Program and subject teaching.

Positive Education aims to provide students with skills and knowledge to increase resilience and wellbeing. Based on the work of Professor Martin Seligman and other researchers in positive psychology, it aims to build students’ PERMA – Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Achievement/Accomplishment – Professor Seligman’s definition of wellbeing. The goal is to build upon and strengthen their understanding of Positive Education through a range of activities woven through the House program, with a focus on the concepts and skills that research in the field of positive psychology has shown to build wellbeing and resilience.
