PESA and Where there’s a Will are delighted to announce Australia’s first ever Positive Education Day, to be celebrated this year on Friday 2 November 2018.

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

Positive Education Day will be celebrated annually on 4 November.  This year we are celebrating on Friday 2 November to align with the school week.  We look forward to growing Positive Education Day with you.

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