Our School Kit
Grow Your Mind school kits are informed by leading-edge research in the fields of developmental cognitive neuroscience, mindfulness, social and emotional learning and positive psychology. They are designed to make embedding wellbeing messages easy, fast and effective. The kit can be used on a daily basis, for as little as two minutes at a time. It can also be expanded into 45 minute lessons linked to both the NSW and the Australian Curriculum.
Grow Your Mind kits aim to support schools to have a positive, inclusive culture by facilitating a common language of wellbeing. The foundation of the NSW Department of Education’s Wellbeing Framework is Connect, Succeed, Thrive. Our kits aim to support these areas and to give any school’s wellbeing culture wings.
In each kit you will find a resource that grows resilience, mindfulness, compassion, character strengths, impulse control, emotional regulation, courage and a growth mindset.
Kits cost is $199.
