Why Ready, Set, GROW!?
Students are experiencing stress, anxiety and depression at alarming rates. In Australia, school students are highly stressed and report that coping with stress is a top issue of concern for them to achieve success in the classroom.
How does Ready, Set, GROW! Fit into the Australian Curriculum?
Students develop personal and social capability (understand themselves and others, and learn to manage relationships, their lives, work and learning more effectively). Furthermore, it is important for students to recognise and regulate their emotions, develop empathy, build positive relationships, handle challenging situations well and develop resilience.
The more students learn about their own emotions, values, strengths and capabilities, the more they are able to manage their own emotions and behaviours, and to understand others and establish and maintain positive relationships.
Anyone wanting to increase personal wellbeing, and assist students in enhancing overall wellbeing to achieve greater fulfilment and success.
