Wellbeing is of utmost importance to our school and we are excited by the upcoming opportunity for our parents and community to hear from The Resilience Project, who influence our daily wellbeing lessons greatly at our school.
On Monday 26/4, Hugh Van Cuylenburg, the founder of The Resilience Project, will present to our school community via Zoom from 6.30pm – 7.30pm.
The Resilience Project delivers emotionally engaging programs to schools, sports clubs and businesses and provides them with evidence-based, practical strategies to build resilience and happiness. The Resilience Project has delivered programs to over 1000 schools around the country and worked with many elite sporting teams including Australian cricket, netball and soccer, NRL and AFL clubs. Through presentations, wellbeing journals, schools curriculum, teacher diaries and their App, The Resilience Project seeks to help all Australians become mentally healthy.
Programs offered by The Resilience Project are based on the following strategies:
- Gratitude – Appreciating what you have, not begrudging what you don’t.
- Empathy – Thinking of the needs of others/kindness.
- Mindfulness – Being present in the moment, not becoming distracted by unhelpful or negative thoughts.
During this presentation, Hugh will share his experiences and combine them with practical strategies that can be implemented every day to improve our overall wellbeing.
We will send out the webinar link in the lead-up to the presentation and hope to see as many EPS families as possible on the night.
