Education Program

Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Education Programs support mental health in the classroom, staffroom and family home.

We are grateful and proud to have delivered wellbeing programs to over 1000 schools across Australia and New Zealand. Our school curriculum has been designed by teachers for teachers, and has been evaluated by the University of Melbourne.

We share positive mental health strategies with the whole school community – teachers, students, parents and carers – to support the implementation of wellbeing curriculum to build resilience, happiness, and drive sustainable behaviour change.

Become a Partnership School

Our emotionally engaging program delivers a combination of digital presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and ongoing support from The Resilience Project Education Team.

Our curriculum is evidence-based and aligns with The New Zealand curriculum and frameworks. It addresses aspects of achievement standards in the Key Competencies and the Health and Physical Education learning area. Content is focused on Gratitude, Empathy, Mindfulness (GEM) and Emotional Literacy.

How to Become a Partnership School

Partnership Schools experience all the GEM journey has to offer, embedding The Resilience Project’s wellbeing curriculum across the whole school community. 

Teachers, students, parents and carers all receive tailored video presentations that teach the GEM principles, and inspire regular practise. To support long term change and embed mental health strategies, Partnership Schools deliver a year-long curriculum consisting of teacher resources, student journals, access to an online teaching hub, and exclusive content released throughout the year.
