The Positive Education Program at AGHS is based upon the principles of Positive Psychology. While mainstream psychology often focuses on people who already suffer mental health issues, Positive Psychology (Positive Education in schools) aims to proactively increase resilience and wellbeing. Our program at AGHS is based on the elements of PERMAH. This model has been adapted from the work of Dr Martin Seligman, a leading psychologist in the field of Positive Psychology.
Since 2019, AGHS has formed a partnership with Luke McKenna and his company, Unleashing Personal Potential (UPP). This partnership has provided AGHS with staff training, student incursions, online lesson modules, ice-breaker activities and in the future; parent training and data collected from student surveys.
