Positive Education

Positive Education in our Catholic context complements and draws motivation from Gospel values; it provides a new language for an enduring belief and therefore is congruent with the vision and mission of Caritas College. The key for a life of purpose in the Catholic tradition is for each person to develop and discern their God-given gifts and talents to their fullest, to use in the service of God, working to make the world a better place.

Positive Education focuses on specific skills that assist students to strengthen their relationships, build positive emotions, enhance personal resilience, promote mindfulness, and encourage a healthy lifestyle. It also aims to foster engagement amongst students, encourage them to achieve and, ultimately, equip them with the qualities to enable them to fulfil their life purposes.

Over the course of the year the Keeping Safe; Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) is  taught to all year levels, Reception to Year 12, providing students with the knowledge and skills across four focus areas: The right to be safe, Relationships, Recognising and reporting abuse and Protective strategies. This is another important element in ensuring the ongoing wellbeing for our students.
