Positive Ed 101: THE HOW, WHY AND WHAT OF TAKING A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO PROMOTING WELLBEING IN SCHOOLS

This session is tailor-made to provide an introduction to wellbeing science for school leaders (board members, principals and other senior leaders) wanting to understand the rationale and benefits of adopting a whole-school approach to wellbeing promotion. Dr Lucy Hone and executive principal Garth Wynne will focus on why whole-school wellbeing promotion is necessary and offer a roadmap to getting started, while John Weeks will share insights from Knox Grammar's wellbeing journey over the last decade and data demonstrating the programme's impact.
