What is PosiSchools?
PosiSchools is an initiative designed to improve the mental health of children through educating participating students on the power of a positive mindset.
We believe that children need to be taught the power and importance of a positive mindset more than anyone. Their opportunity to establish positive thinking habits is critical for not just a child’s present, but also their future.
PosiSchools is a 21 day program consisting of engaging content and classroom activities, featuring learnings and inspiring stories from some of Australia’s most renowned athletes.
The program launched in Term 4 of 2022 and we had over 5,000 students participate across Australia with loads of great feedback from our participating schools on the impact the program had.
At PosiSchools, our purpose is to lead a positive movement across Australian schools. We’re aiming to teach Australian children the importance of a positive mindset. Beyond this we want to make a difference to the broader Australian community.
Each participating student will receive a pair of PosiSchools’ Posisocks!
For every 10 students that participate in PosiSchools, a pair of socks will also be given to the homeless community – facilitated through our charity partners, We Are Mobilise and Pass it On Clothing & Co.
In addition, for every student that participates, $1 will be donated to support Indigenous schools and communities.
