School as Family: Education aligned with healthy child development

Sue’s TEDx Norwich talk:

Healthy child development includes the drive to discover, become independent, be active, connect with others and have fun. When schools promote an environment that fosters positive development, all pupils are more likely to thrive. Education that mirrors the best of family life puts wellbeing at its heart and includes learning to be and live together as well as knowledge and skills. This will not only reduce mental health concerns and enable young people to become the best of themselves, it will also empower future communities to flourish.

Young Aboriginal Women are the hope of  future communities.  Watch this photo-film to see how the AGC connects high school girls,  gives them a voice, grows leaders and ‘solutionaries’.   The AGC, initiated by Sue Roffey, has been positively evaluated by Dr Brenda Dobia and her team at the University of Western Sydney.  We hope to eventually roll  this out across Australia.
