Building Resilience: Building our Future

Seaford Primary School, VIC

Seaford Primary School seeks to develop a higher level of resilience in every student, to ensure they are ready and able to engage in learning. Research indicates a lack of resilience has the single largest impact on poor mental health, particularly anxiety and depression.

A recent survey indicated more than 50% of Year 5/6 students at Seaford Primary School were suffering from some level of distress. By working with an expert mindfulness coach and the team at The Resilience Project, the school seeks to build students’ resilience, addressing the three main components of resilience – gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.

Significant staff training will enable a whole school, integrated approach to this project and ensure student skills are built upon. As students’ resilience grows, the school expects to see increased levels of engagement (including higher levels of student morale and lower levels of student distress) and decreased levels of absenteeism and lateness to school.

They also expect to see a reduction in conflict with others and greater levels of acceptance for student differences, resulting in calmer classrooms and less time spent on conflict resolution and student discipline.
