The PosiSchools Program
The PosiSchools program is designed by leading wellbeing education and mental health experts and draws on a range of human sciences including wellbeing and learning sciences. PosiSchools provides evidence-based strategies, skills, and knowledge that help students navigate life more effectively. The content is designed to be adaptable for students with varying capabilities and challenges.
How does the program work?
The program consists of 21 days of activities, delivered in short, bite-sized sessions. It takes 21 days to form a habit so we’re doing just that – helping to build healthy habits! The content is ready-made for teachers to bring fun and inspiration to the classroom.
How is the program delivered?
The sessions are designed to be delivered by the classroom teacher. Don’t worry though, there is minimal preparation required – we’ve done the hard work for you! The program consists of daily worksheets and activities which are downloadable from the online portal, as well as videos to watch from each of our ambassadors.
How is the program structured?
Primary school grades 1 through to 6 will each complete a different element of the program. The modules for each grade are as follows:
Grade 1 – Gratitude
Grade 2 – Curiosity
Grade 3 – Connection
Grade 4 – Caring
Grade 5 – Mindset
Grade 6 – Mindfulness

Professor Martin Seligman, one of the world’s leading researchers in positive psychology and human flourishing, suggests that wellbeing is cultivated by the presence in our lives of positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning and accomplishment. This framework is often referred to as ‘PERMA’.
Many also believe (ourselves included) that your Health is one of the key factors of wellbeing. So, we’ve added Health to Martin’s framework, making it ‘PERMAH’.
Posisocks came from the idea that putting your socks on every morning is one of the most common routines we all have. We believe a small action each day can become a trigger for setting a more positive mindset. Posisocks are comfy and cool socks (well we like to think so) with a positive message that triggers positive thinking – win the morning, win the day!
The PosiSchools’ Posisocks are a limited edition version of Posisocks, exclusive only to our PosiSchools participants.
There are two sock styles that your school can choose from. Every student participating will receive a pair of socks, with key days throughout the 21 day program where we encourage your school to wear the socks as one.
