The following resources might be useful for students, guardians and staff in schools.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

MacKillop Education understands how critically important it is for students to engage in social and emotional learning. Social and emotional learning (SEL) can help students learn skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Positive Education

At MacKillop Education, staff embrace a Positive Education approach. Positive Education blends academic learning with the science of Positive Psychology. Positive Education aims to promote positive mental health amongst the school community, encourage students to experience positive emotions, enhance engagement, promote healthy relationships, contribute to student’s sense of meaning and ensure students feel a sense of achievement and accomplishment. We aim to help students to reflect on and nurture their individual character strengths.

Positive Emotion
= General tendency toward feeling contentment and joy
Engagement = Psychological absorption, interest and involvement in the world
Relationships = Feeling loved, supported and valued by others
Meaning = Having a sense of direction in life, feel life is worthwhile
Accomplishment = Subjective sense of mastery and achievement

Trauma-informed education

MacKillop Education uses the ReLATE trauma-informed model of practice. Within ReLATE, wellbeing is understood as an essential pre-condition for quality teaching and learning. Safe, predictable and supportive learning environments are created and maintained in classrooms where students are not just known, but deeply understood.
