The Resilience Project

We are delighted to inform our school community we have engaged in a Partnership Program with The Resilience Program for 2021. Teachers, students and parents will all have an opportunity to engage in this exciting program experienced by so many schools around the country.


The Resilience Project delivers emotionally engaging programs to schools, sports clubs and businesses, providing practical, evidence-based mental health strategies to build resilience and happiness.


Through presentations, school curriculum, events, the TRP App, and Wellbeing Journals, we share the benefits of Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness, and easy ways to practise these in everyday life. We also incorporate Emotional Literacy, Connection and Physical Health education and activities as they are foundational contributors to positive mental health.

Practicing Gratitude 

These daily questions have been developed to help families practise the GEM principles. They are a great way to facilitate positive conversations as your family shares a meal either in the morning, afternoon or evening or at a time that works best. 


Check out some great GEM CHAT questions here: 

● What were three things that went well for you today? 

● Who is someone you feel really grateful for today? Tell us why. 

● What is it about our home that makes it our home/special family place? 

● What is something you are looking forward to tomorrow?
