The Resilience Project

This year we have partnered with The Resilience Project as part of our Wellbeing program, Flourish.

We started researching the program and reaching out to other schools for information early last year whilst also taking note of the research from both the University of Melbourne and the University of Adelaide. The research looked at every student who was involved in the program and measured their outcomes against those who were not involved in the program. The findings illustrated providing the tools and interventions to build resilience can significantly lower the risk of mental illness and buffer the effects of stressful life events'.

The Key Pillars

The Resilience Project is built on the 4 pillars of Gratitude, Emotional Literacy, Mindfulness and Empathy, links directly with our work with the Compassion Institute at Stanford University and Berry Street Education and, importantly, involves ‘Parents as Partners’.

The Resilience Project supports more than just students

Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Education Programs support mental health in the classroom, staffroom and the family home.

We know that for any program to succeed, it must be a whole school community approach and needs to involve our families so that we can share a common language.
