Every day, parents, carers, families and the greater community rely on educators to guide the educational journey of children all over the world.
Educators play an absolutely vital role in supporting a child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical development, and the quality work delivered by teachers and educators as significant growth partners is vital to the balanced development of a child’s academic, social and emotional capabilities.
At PLS, we acknowledge and recognise the value of all educators.
Over the last few years, we have connected with many educators and we have heard and seen how many are feeling more challenged stressed than ever before. Teacher wellbeing is vital to a successful educational system and as educator’s juggle all their growing workloads and competing priorities, support is the key. Below you'll find introductions to three of the main components of our initiative - the PLS Early Childhood Wellbeing Program, Primary School Wellbeing program and our approach to Professional Development. You can also watch short introductory videos to the 6 core concepts that feature in our programs.
The teaching staff at Marton have embraced the Positive Living Skills program, and we've only received positive feedback. The students are engaged and they're loving the program. They're short lessons, they're to the point and the students are getting a lot out of them.'

Teachers need to be comfortable talking about feelings. This is part of teaching emotional literacy - a set of skills we can all develop, including the ability to read, understand, and respond appropriately to one's own emotions and the emotions of others – Daniel Goleman, Author, Psychologist, Science Journalist
