Positive Education

This chapter explores the founding of the Institute of Positive Education, which operates under the banner of Geelong Grammar School and is dedicated to promoting the science of wellbeing in educational contexts, at the school, and more widely, both in Australia and beyond. The goals for the future of Positive Education are summarized as three objectives. The first objective is to promote excellence in Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School. The second objective is to share Positive Education with other schools through the provision of meaningful training programs and excellent resources and curriculum materials. The third objective is to continue to help to lead a shift in education, with the aim that all schools will embrace the science of wellbeing as central to their philosophy and curriculum. These objectives reflect the Geelong Grammar School vision of a future where values such as kindness, forgiveness, and compassion are considered to be the foundation of education.
