Creating Positive School Communities

Seaspray Primary School, VIC

Boosting their students' wellbeing despite the 'tyranny of distance' is the aim of this project, a collaboration between seven remote schools in Victoria's Gippsland region. Enrolling just 200 students in total, the schools will work together to introduce a resilience program that will develop the social and emotional skills of students, teachers and families.

The schools involved - Seaspray Primary School, Airly Primary School, Wurruk Primary School, Cowwarr Primary School, Lochsport Primary School, Nambrok-Denison Primary School and Bundalaguah Primary School - enrol between 9 and 94 students each. They already work closely together - staff meet regularly for collegiate planning and support, and students join together for camps, sports days and excursions. But the remoteness of their location and the tiny size of their populations mean many families are socially isolated and do not have access to support agencies. Many families and children also live with some form of mental illness.

The schools want to introduce the respected KidsMatter program to build the students' resilience and social and emotional intelligence to help them become more effective learners, while providing families with additional support through information sessions. Collaboration between the schools will help teachers embed the program across the network, and the KidsMatter evaluation framework will be used to measure the outcomes.

With your support, these seven schools will be able to afford the teacher training required to implement the program in the classrooms across the network, plus run the information sessions for parents.
