Educators from Beechworth Primary School, Wooragee Primary School, St Josephs Primary School Beechworth, Beechworth Montessori School, Beechworth Community Childcare Centre, Beechworth Kindergarten, Yackandandah Kindergarten and Dederang Primary School have come together to learn more about fostering resilience for the children in our community with a professional development session from The Resilience Project. In attendance were 60 of our local educators, 130 parents / carers and 380 primary school students who heard and learnt about fostering good mental health and happiness through practising gratitude, empathy, mindfulness and kindness.

A special mention to our Health Promotion staff member Gabriella Tange for organising this extremely successful event. Gabriella was responsible for the successful funding submission, planning the event and the logistics of bringing everyone together. Community feedback has been overwhelming.

This is a great example of how as a health service we cater to the needs of all ages. Check out the photos on our Facebook  and Twitter pages as well as  The Resilience Project’s Facebook page.
