Wellbeing Framework

The KRB ELC-12 Wellbeing Framework, SELF + (Social Emotional Learning to Flourish), has been uniquely developed to meet the needs of all KRB students (boys and girls in Bart-Burn, Day and Boarding students in the Senior School) as they progress through the school from our Early Learning Centre to Year 12; it is informed by the science of positive psychology and is underpinned by an understanding of the five Sacred Heart goals.

Positive Education is a concept that underpins the educational experience of all students at KRB. Positive Education is defined as the combination of traditional education principles with the study of happiness and wellbeing. (Seligman, 2011) Applying the key tenets of Positive Education, known as PERMAH (Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishment and Health) is crucial to developing the well-being of students. The KRB Student Wellbeing framework applies these by ensuring each individual develops Social, Emotional, and Learning skills in order to flourish.

KRB’s Student Wellbeing framework is well-informed by current research and has a focus on the evidence based concepts of Gratitude, Growth Mindset, Mindfulness, Resilience and the identification of Character Strengths.
