We are delighted to confirm that Professor Martin Seligman, the founder of Positive Psychology, will be just one of a myriad of international and national experts who will share their knowledge and expertise at this event.

Designed as a Positive Education Retreat, the event will be hosted at Geelong Grammar School to coincide with their celebration of a decade in Positive Education, and will offer delegates the rare opportunity to stay on-campus.

The theme for our 2018 PESA conference will be CONNECT.

This theme reflects the event’s aims of connecting theory with application, connecting Positive Education with curriculum and culture, connecting delegates to foster sharing and collaboration, and connecting each participant with Positive Psychology practices and interventions to boost their own individual wellbeing: CONNECT with Positive Education, CONNECT with experts, and CONNECT with each other…

We’re keen to innovate and would love to hear your ideas on how else we can spread the theme of connection throughout the event.

The organising committee is working hard to offer participants an engaging, innovative and highly practical event, taking into account your feedback from previous conferences.  We’ll bring you current developments and the latest research in the field of Positive Education, featuring keynotes and panel discussions with local and international experts and thought-leaders.

We’ll also be highlighting best practice, and provide participants with ample opportunities to learn from each other through workshops and collaboration breaks – it is our hope that all delegates will leave the event with expanded networks, and brimming with new ideas to implement back in their own schools, homes or communities.
