Education

Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Education Programs support mental health in the classroom, staffroom and family home.

We are grateful and proud to have delivered wellbeing programs to over 1000 schools and early learning centres across Australia. Our schools program has been designed by teachers for teachers, and has been evaluated by the University of Melbourne.

We share positive mental health strategies with the whole school community – teachers, students, parents and carers – to support the implementation of wellbeing curriculum to build resilience, happiness, and drive sustainable change.

Programs

Our emotionally engaging programs deliver a combination of presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources, digital content, and ongoing support from The Resilience Project Education team.

Our curriculum is evidence-based and mapped to the Australian Curriculum Framework: focussing on Gratitude, Empathy, Mindfulness (GEM) and Emotional Literacy.

An immersive approach to begin the GEM journey for a school’s community; with in-person presentations for teachers, students and parents/carers. Presentations are designed to educate, and inspire the ongoing practise of GEM.

GEM

This program introduces GEM to teachers and students, with 15 of The Resilience Project’s wellbeing lessons printed directly into student planners. Teachers are provided with detailed lesson plans and resources along with support from our Education Team. (Available for Secondary Schools only).

Daily
Reflections

In this program, daily wellbeing activities are embedded into student planners. Activities take 2-5 minutes to complete, and focus on practising GEM, as well as reflections on Sleep, Healthy Eating and Exercise.

Early
Years

A 21 week program for Early Childcare and Education Centres to build mental wellbeing amongst educators, children and parents. Includes Educator Resources, Professional Development, a take-home Family Journal and more.

About Our Curriculum

The Resilience Project curriculum has been designed by teachers for teachers. We understand that teachers facilitating the delivery of wellbeing curriculum will have varying levels of expertise in the subject. 

To assist, we have designed evidence-based lesson plans and activities that are easy to follow, include comprehensive resources, and a range of practical activities to make delivery of the curriculum an engaging and enjoyable experience.

The preferred approach is to complete each lesson in its entirety, however we acknowledge that this isn’t always possible. Therefore, lessons have been divided into multiple shorter activities, which provide the opportunity to complete as much of the lesson as possible and still achieve great outcomes.

Our curriculum has been produced to align with Victorian and Australian Curriculum Standards and Frameworks, and addresses aspects of achievement standards in the Personal and Social Capabilities learning area and the Health and Physical Education learning area. 

Our Partnership Program has been evaluated by the University of Melbourne, with 6 primary schools receiving the Program and 6 schools used for comparison data.

Focus groups and interviews conducted with students, parents and teachers showed that students benefited from the Program in different ways:

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem, especially in relation to their peer relationships
  • Improved wellbeing and ability to express emotions
  • Improved knowledge and communication of emotions 
  • Improved relationships both at school and at home
  • More supportive classroom environments


Survey data shows that students who received the Program significantly increased their practice of daily gratitude compared to those in non-Program schools.

New to The Resilience Project curriculum in 2021

As part of the continual improvement process we have once again reviewed our curriculum (incorporated the feedback from the University of Melbourne evaluation) and made some exciting additions for 2021.

A summary of some of the improvements are:

  • Increasing teacher and school support for best-practice implementation with a new Teacher Toolkit sharing detailed information about how to get the most out of the program at your school.
  • Helping schools ‘fit it all in’ by increasing integration with The Resilience Project lessons and what you are already doing in the classroom. We have further mapped all our lessons to English as well as Health and Physical Education and Personal Social Development at primary. We have also included where required some English prompts to assist teachers to easily identify lessons they can complete in an English block.
  • In order to build a whole-school approach to GEM we have further embedded the new GEM CHATS concept into our curriculum.
  • Supporting schools to build partnerships with parents and strengthen the school home connection with new ‘Take it Home’ activities for primary and changes to our ‘Take it Home’ for secondary. Our brand new TRP@HOME platform also provides a great resource for parents to engage in the program.
  • Improving our digital platform so that the way you access and engage with our resources is more user friendly. We will also regularly release fresh digital lessons throughout the year for each year level to keep current with global and local happenings.
