Positive Education

At Buckley Park College the Student Engagement and Wellbeing Team have worked to create a positive wellbeing program that is informed by the evidence provided by the field of Positive Psychology. We call this program Connections. While work is tailored to the needs of particular cohorts, it is influenced by the work of Martin Seligman, Carol Dweck, Ilona Boniwell and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, among others. Further to this, we have worked in conjunction with the Centre for Positive Psychology at the University of Melbourne, to survey the wellbeing of our students, and to continue to devise the best Connections program possible.

Please see our Connections themes for each year level below.
