A Learning Revolution

Welcome to Term 3! After a wonderful vacation and interesting travel for many of us, here we are back ready for the term ahead.

Positive Education at Avondale Grammar

Avondale is at the forefront of the Positive Education movement in Singapore. Positive Education is exactly as its name suggests: a pastoral learning programme that teaches children the skills and attitudes they need to promote resilience and guide them along the pathway of wellbeing. At Avondale we have adopted the Bounce Back! Programme written by Dr Toni Noble and Dr Helen McGrath. We made this video during Dr Noble’s last visit to the School. We hope it explains a little more about what Positive Education is and how it benefits the students. We hope you enjoy!
