Geelong Grammar School (GGS) has been implementing and sustaining Positive Education for the past ten years. It has been a fascinating journey that has provided many lessons to the team of educators dedicated to pioneering this whole-school approach to wellbeing.

Justin Robinson was a Head of House at GGS back in 2008 when the staff and students were first introduced to the key tenets of positive psychology. Since this time, Justin has held the role of the Head of the Positive Education department for four years and has been the founding Director of the Institute of Positive Education for the past five years. These roles have enabled Justin to have significant personal experience in implementing wellbeing initiatives, supporting whole-school change, and assisting hundreds of schools around Australia and internationally to place wellbeing at the heart of education.

In this workshop, Justin will draw upon his insights from the successes and mistakes of the past ten years of Positive Education and share 10 Hopeful thoughts for the field of Positive Education as it looks forward to its next ten years. Delegates will be able to take away key ideas that will assist their school with their ongoing commitment to student and staff wellbeing.
