Our staff and students across our schools continue to explore, practice and embed key concepts of Positive Education and we would like to share this common language of wellbeing. Throughout these sessions we aim to create an awareness of how Character Strengths, Growth Mindset, Positive Emotions and Positive Relationships can help us thrive and flourish individually and collectively.

We have a wonderful opportunity for you, as parents, to learn more about Positive Education and how you can continue to enhance your own wellbeing, as well as support the wellbeing of your children, both at home, at school and within the wider community. These sessions will be hosted by Edwina Ricci, the Project Manager for the Maroondah Positive Education Network.
