When it comes to resilience and wellbeing, hope is a critically important predictor of how our children are going.

“Kids who are hopeful are happier and more satisfied with life,” says international speaker, author and expert psychologist, Dr Justin Coulson.

“They even do better with things like academic and athletic achievement and success.”

“And if you don’t have hope, well, you’re hope-less. That’s related to all the things we don’t want for our children; depression, anxiety, poor relationships, and lousy academic outcomes.”

“Collaboration is a key enabler to our health and wellbeing program at Christ Church. Supporting parents in regards to supporting their sons is a key aspect to delivering a holistic program that ultimately serves our community,” says Liam Casson, Director of The Wynne Centre for Boys’ Health and Wellbeing.

“We encourage all our students to embrace a ‘growth mindset’ and strive to be the best versions of themselves and feel that these messages complement what we do, not just through the health and wellbeing curriculum, but across the pastoral, academic, sporting and co-curricular programs.”

“We look forward to welcoming the return of Dr Coulson on Wednesday 27 March as he conducts a free community talk on Growth Mindset.”

“Dr Coulson is an engaging and highly skilled presenter who is able to break down wellbeing science into practical application. All parents and carers of our boys are encouraged to attend this highly useful and informational session.”

The session will be hosted by The Wynne Centre for Boys’ Health and Wellbeing and Centre for Ethics in the Senior School Staff Room from 7.30pm to 9.00pm. Register your attendance here.
