To celebrate Positive Education at Oakleigh Primary School, students participated in a whole day of activities covering a range of concepts central to promoting their overall wellbeing and resilience. In mixed age groups across the school, students explored the themes of kindness, giving and receiving gratitude, mindfulness and managing worries, character strengths and optimism. They had a colourful, fun-filled day being immersed in activities which strengthened their level of positive emotion and relationships.
