About the 2022 Conference:

The theme for our 2022 conference is "Re-Connect: Re-engaging Students, Re-invigorating Staff, Re-shaping Culture".

The conference will offer the opportunity for the education community to reconnect with one another and to the fundamental pillars of wellbeing in our schools: Students, Staff and Culture. The program will offer practical solutions to address the challenges facing school leaders and educators with regard to implementation of Positive Education and wellbeing science by providing the current developments in theory and research, as well as helping educators to connect evidence, research and theory to the creation of practical classroom and school-wide strategies to enhance student wellbeing and academic attainment.

This conference is also designed to be a wellbeing intervention for all attendees, with ample time built into the program for reflection, brain breaks, and meaningful connections with each other.

The conference will:

  • Re-connect the education sector to the fundamental pillars of a sustainable wellbeing
  • Guide attendees to design a wellbeing strategy for their school, staff, classroom, students, business or themselves
  • Include presentations from all sectors of education (Government, Catholic and Independent)
  • Present the latest cutting edge research from leading global academics
  • Bridge the gap between research and practice
  • Be a wellbeing intervention for staff and attendees
