Knowing and utilizing what is right with you! 
How could knowing and utilising your own strengths and the strengths of those around you transform your school and your teaching practice? This keynote presentation will explore the language and framework of the VIA Character Strength classification, and how these can be applied and embedded in a school setting.
Delegates will gain an understanding of ideas on how character can be learned, practiced and cultivated.  Practice wisdom, including mistakes, challenges and successes from ten years of implementing a strengths-based approach at Geelong Grammar School will also be shared with the audience.
Justin Robinson is the Director of the Institute of Positive Education.  In the past five years, this Institute has assisted thousands of educators from around the world to know their character strengths and to harness them for the good of society.  The Institute hopes that schools will embrace a common language of character strengths to help support students to nurture healthy relationships, foster resilience and increase engagement.
