This July 2021 we are thrilled to launch Project Flourish!
We have an outstanding, evidence based whole school social and emotional program and we want more schools to have access to it.
Project Flourish is about supporting our regional and rural communities, ensuring that their primary schools have access to quality mental health education. You can't separate learning and wellbeing.
This project has been made possible by generous donations from philanthropic individuals and with the support of The Gogo Foundation.
In 2021 Project Flourish will award 7 schools scholarships to regional or rural schools.
THE SCHOLARSHIP PROVIDES
Access to the Grow Your Mind whole school program for 12 months, including:
- Digital for Teachers online subscription (units of work, emotional literacy tools, video lessons, mini wellbeing exercises)
- Professional development: Introduction to Teacher Wellbeing (2 hours) Implementing Grow Your Mind (1.5 hours)
- Pre and post impact evaluation surveys

MENTAL HEALTH IMPACT
Pre and post evaluation surveys of 106 primary school kids at South Coogee Public School in 2019 revealed that:
92% felt MORE confident to take care of their mental health since doing the Grow Your Mind lessons.
1 in 2 students knew about the key parts of the brain as opposed to 1 in 5 before the Grow Your Mind program.
Our teacher wellbeing course has seen 95% of all school staff attendees increase in their confidence to take care of their mental health.
To date we have donated:
120 school kits
50 home kits
2 teacher wellbeing courses
15 Weeds and Flowers board games
We are proud to be in such a diverse range of schools that are growing by the day… sometimes people like to know who has our resources. With over 200 schools to date investing in them, the list is long.
