Australia’s first ever Positive Education Day, was celebrated on Friday 2 November 2018.  Please click here to view the highlight video.

We are delighted to partner with Upper Hunter Where There’s a Will, a charity based in NSW, to bring this event to schools across Australia annually.

The day’s theme – Colour Your Threads for Pos Ed – invites students and teachers to wear colourful clothes to make Positive Education visible in schools.

Let’s work together to raise awareness and understanding of  Positive Education in our schools and communities, and to encourage students, teachers, families and the community to learn and talk about how to grow their own wellbeing, and support the wellbeing of those around them.

Our goal is to support disadvantaged schools and their communities to undertake a journey of Positive Education and wellbeing.  We can do this by providing access to:

  • Education about Positive Education and why it is important
  • PESA Memberships
  • PESA Conference tickets
  • Resources to support their school’s Positive Education journey

Donations from our 2018 Positive Education Day funded 5 teachers from disadvantaged schools across Australia to attend the PESA 2019 National Conference.

Positive Education Day will be celebrated annually on 4 November so diarise it now!

There is no cost to schools to participate, but we will ask that schools collect a gold coin donation from participating students if possible.
