The Resilience Project

Box Hill North Primary School is pleased to welcome a whole school framework and approach in conjunction with The Resilience Project that addresses student wellbeing. This framework incorporates our existing programs and extends them using The Resilience Projects’ key pillars of Gratitude, Mindfulness, Emotional Literacy, and Empathy.

Box Hill North Primary School is now an official partner of the Resilence Project commencing 2018.

Prep to Year 6 students participate in a set of workshops throughout the year that focus on emotional intelligence and practical life skills. The workshops provide an opportunity for students to engage in activities that re-enforce the schools culture of respect. The Resilience Project covers topics including:

  • Positive thinking
  • Emotional literacy
  • Self-awareness
  • Gratitude
  • Empathy
  • Kindness
  • Self-calming
  • Mindful conversations
  • Effective communication

The Resilience Project’s key mission is to teach positive mental health strategies to our students.

Our aim is to promote independence, resilience, engagement and the confidence to achieve in all of our students and we are confident that this new partnership will help facilitate these goals.

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.

We run a progressive and innovative technology program to produce true 21st Century Citizens. Students in Prep enjoy using iPads and students in the senior school will be instructed with Ultrabooks as a part of our 1-to-1 program.
