RAVENSWOOD SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
Ravenswood School for Girls is a lighthouse for applying the principles of positive psychology to the school context. The school is the fi rst in NSW to be selected to partner with Dr Lea Waters, professor and founding director of the Positive Psychology Centre at the University of Melbourne, as a foundation school for her Visible Wellbeing Instructional Model. The junior school has also begun an evidence-based mindfulness program in consultation with Professor Jean Watson, a mindfulness instructor from Oxford University. The pilot program, which involves careful measurement and data collection, is being rolled out from kindergarten to Year 6.
