Wellbeing and inner happiness

At KRB, a positive education is about meeting every student's academic, emotional, social and spiritual needs. Positive Education is a concept that underpins the educational experience of all students at KRB.

We structure all programs to help our students achieve:

  • Wellbeing and happiness at school and in their everyday lives
  • A feeling of connectedness to the school and the broader community
  • An appreciation of their strengths and their potential to acquire new strengths
  • A belief that they are capable of achieving whatever they set their minds to.

Some examples of how KRB ensures a positive education are:

  • Working with students to set personal and academic goals and supporting them to achieve and review their goals
  • Actively teaching positive psychology through our Pastoral Care Program, focusing on qualities such as resilience, gratitude, positive relationships, positive emotions and the identification of personal strengths
  • Teaching students the concept of the ‘growth mindset’ (Dweck, 2007), where students are encouraged to view their skills and knowledge as changeable through effort
  • Monitoring the academic, social, emotional and spiritual progress and development of each student through our P-12 Student Tracking Program
  • Using constructive and positive feedback as a way of supporting student improvement.
