Measure students wellbeing
Life Skills Group programs are evidence based and aligned to the Australian Curriculum (ACARA), CASEL and Skills for 21st Century Learning (WEF). The programs are based on modern research in Mindfulness, Neuroscience, Positive Psychology and Wellbeing science. Students are supported to develop a skillset that is essential for lifelong learning helping to build resilience, growth mindset, and respect for the physical body. These three areas are integral to a flourishing life (Keyes, 2007).
Life Skills Group programs are Be You approved and assessed, and will be listed in their updated programs directory in early 2021.
The programs draw upon Martin Seligman’s theory of PERMAH which incorporates positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, accomplishment and health. The applications of wellbeing are supported by the foundations of the Australian curriculum and designed to nurture schools through the process and journey of providing the best opportunities for our future generations.
“A highly recommended program for students - particularly in the junior school. It provided the students with practical skills, knowledge and strategies to manage themselves and navigate the world around them. The students were able to engage with abstract emotional and social concepts in a real and meaningful way. All students should complete a program just like this one.”
“Guildford West Public School has been successful at improving wellbeing by using a whole school approach - integrating multiple initiatives including Life Skills Go online lessons. It has helped that the teachers and staff have all had the Life Skills Professional Development training, and there is now a common language among students and teachers. We plan our curriculum to include Life Skills Go lessons at least 1-2x a week with a specific, targeted focus on social and emotional learning. There has been a significant reduction in disruptive behaviour across the school, and an 80% drop in suspensions between 2017 and 2020 which is evidence of the initiatives implemented to address student wellbeing and social and emotional learning.”

"Since implementing Life Skills in-school student programs and Life Skills Go across the school, the noted benefits have been:
1. Students love the program and the Life Skills teachers.
2. Students say it's one of their favourite things to do at school.
3. Teachers use the wellbeing lessons and wellbeing data reported in Life Skills Go to stay connected to their students.
4. Students use the Life Skills strategies they learn outside of the classroom
5. Calmer classrooms have been noted after continued use of Life Skills.
6. Students are talking about the Life Skills lessons they learn with their parents, and practice at home with their families."
