Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2021 Australasian Wellbeing in Education Conference such a success!

Our gratitude to our presenters, sponsors, conference committee, board, conference manager and of course our hundreds of delegates for their generous support of our event.

Missed the conference? Don’t despair! Many of our presenters have very kindly agreed to allow PESA members access the recordings of their presentations – these include masterclasses, workshops, Inspire sessions, keynotes and 20:20 Vision sessions.

We could not be more grateful for the generosity of our presenters, and their commitment to sharing their knowledge, expertise and experience with our community of practice.  Please click here to access all online presentations (Note: these are available only to current PESA members – remember to log in first).

The theme for this year’s conference was ‘Flourishing in a Changed World’, focusing on growing wellbeing in our schools and communities through the lens of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2021 marked PESA’s sixth national conference, offering world-class learning and outstanding value for money. Please click here to view the conference website and program.

Our fully virtual program offered participants the opportunity to learn, share, connect and collaborate with experts and practitioners, teachers and school leaders, and parents and community members who share a commitment to an evidence-based approach to the wellbeing of students, staff and schools.

Designed to inform delegates of current developments and the latest research in the field of Positive Education through expert local and international keynotes, masterclasses, panels and workshops, PESA conferences highlight best practice, and foster an environment where delegates may learn from each other through collaboration and sharing of ideas and experiences.

Our program is carefully planned to ensure a balance between theory and practical application, catering to those with little knowledge of the field, as well as those with more advanced knowledge.

We are also committed to ensuring our conferences create an environment where our delegates can take some time to care for their own wellbeing, and connect with like-minded individuals.

It’s this ethos that ensures the PESA conference is a truly unique experience, which resonates with participants well after it concludes.

Our stellar list of keynote presenters included:

Add to this list 70+ masterclass, workshop, inspire, student and 20:20 session presenters spanning academia, school leadership, teaching, psychology, change management, indigenous engagement, community and more.

PESA thanks our premier sponsors for their generous support of our 2021 conference.
