About me & my work:

I have a passion for teaching and nurturing the skills of wellbeing to all members of a school community. I am currently the Director of the Institute of Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School. In 2008, Professor Martin Seligman lived within our school community and introduced us to the key tenets of Positive Psychology. Since this time, Geelong Grammar School has been recognised as the first school in the world to adopt a whole-school approach to wellbeing, which has become known as Positive Education. The goal of Positive Education is to help individuals and communities to flourish. In 2014, due to significant interest, GGS established an Institute of Positive Education of which I am currently the Director. The Institute endeavours to lead by example and innovate in the field of Positive Education by providing transformational educational programmes. Our Purpose is to make a positive difference in the world through inspiring students, individuals and communities to flourish. I find it most rewarding co-creating and tailoring Geelong Grammar School's ongoing Positive Education program and this work is now complemented with inspiring and supporting others around Australia and the world to implement Positive Education or to benefit from the science of Positive Psychology. I invite fellow General Thinkers to connect with our team at the Institute.
