Why teach Positive Education in schools?

Mathew White

Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School is a whole school approach to teaching and learning from kindergarten to the final years of senior school. It aims to increase the experience of positive emotions in our students and to encourage them to engage their strengths for personal and community goals. It is closely linked to the school's Positive Psychology programs in Year 7 and Year 10, which have been written by prominent psychologists in collaboration with our teachers.
