In 2022 we introduced students and families to ‘The Resilience Project’. The program content focuses on the key pillars to resilience: Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM) along with Emotional Literacy, which is a key skill to be able to practice these strategies. With regular practice they increase learning capacity, emotional literacy, physical health and happiness.

Gratitude is paying attention to the things that we have right now, and not worrying about what we don’t have. We practise this by noticing the positives that exist around us.

Empathy is our ability to put ourselves in the shoes of others to feel and see what they do. We practice this through being kind and compassionate towards other people.

Mindfulness is our ability to be calm and present at any given moment. We practice this by slowing down and concentrating on one thing at a time.
