HOW WE CRACKED THE CODE TO POSITIVE EDUCATION

  • CULTIVATION: Explicitly teach & conscious practice. Gratitude & other positive habits is like learning a skill is a sport. We must practice.
  • TIME ALLOCATION: it centres around allocating time to allow students to
    consciously cultivate gratitude/positive habits. The good news? We don’t have to spend hours a day to cultivate in an already crowded curriculum.
  • CONSISTENCY: Many teachers will only do a positive education activity every
    now and then. To build a habit requires consistent, conscious practice.
  • FUN & ENGAGING: in our research we discovered Students find some of the
    well known activities that help cultivate gratitude & other positive habits boring.
  • REFRAMING: Teaching students (and yourself) how to reframe is one of the most powerful skills a person can learn. Through implementing the other 4 key steps reframing is the ultimate skill we are aiming to embed within our students. Reframing grows gratitude, kindness, empathy, mindfulness, resilience, a growth mindset and ultimately happy people.

We introduce simple strategies to motivate your team and empower them to take control of their own happiness. GWG Corporate can present on different topics depending on the needs of the team.

SCHOOLS

The GWG schools program builds and protects children’s mental health. We do this by teaching student skills based on gratitude, kindness, empathy, mindfulness and serving others, resulting in greater resilience and happiness. Furthermore we are teaching students skills to overcome adversity and challenges, as well as teaching students to be good citizens.

TEACHER WELLBEING

We’ve teamed up with Be Intent to create well-being technology tool designed specifically for educators. The tool prompts what is needed, delivers solutions and measures the results.

“The Growing with Gratitude Program empowers primary-school aged children with valuable tools and skills to help them lead healthy, successful and productive lives. “This contributes to the Education Department’s Wellbeing for Learning and Life Framework, which supports students to be more resilient and engaged in positive experiences, form stronger friendships, be more optimistic and show increased self-esteem.”

GROWING WITH GRATITUDE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Over the past 6 months we’ve been working away with South African based, Cape Town Child Welfare Society, South Africa’s largest child welfare organisation. CTCWS promote the wellbeing of all children, predominantly those in poor socio-economic communities by protecting those in crisis and at risk, enhancing the capacity of families and communities to protect and develop their children.

At Growing With Gratitude we have customised a program, where the Social Workers will guide families in implementing gratitude, kindness, empathy, positive reflection and service practice in their homes. Full credit to the organisation, as they have modified GWG to be an intervention strategy to assist the Children and Families in their care.

Last week the team presented how Growing With Gratitude will be rolled out to the Social Workers at the Cape Town Child Welfare Society. A big shout out to Louise Bearman who facilitated the session. Louise has also been instrumental in getting the program off the ground. All reports it was brilliant. Check out their work here: helpkids.org.za
