We loved being part of the ‘Puppy Christmas party’ to celebrate and acknowledge all the incredible volunteers and their pups who give up their time to help others.
Thank you to all the volunteers, we appreciate everything you do. Together we can help make this world a better place.
7.30 Report - The story behind ‘Where There’s a Will’
Link below to the 7.30 Report piece from the 4th of January 2016. The Report covers how the suicide of Will Carrigan, 24, prompted his parents to start a campaign in their rural community to introduce what is known as 'positive education' to help young people with mental illness.
The Sheargold Foundation are very proud to have been a part of the Positive Education Information forum that took place at Scone High School on Monday 28/11/2016. The forum showcased how the introduction of ’Positive Education’ programs into 21 schools in the Upper Hunter will allow the community to make a positive change to mental illness. ‘Positive Education gives equal importance to student happiness and wellbeing, along with academic achievements. it is underpinned by the science of Positive Psychology, seeking to identify strengths, skills and social contexts to enable the individual and community to thrive’.
We are honoured to be onboard to support PESA (Positive Education Schools Association) https://www.pesa.edu.au/ and ’Where there’s a Will’ http://uhwheretheresawill.com.au/ to establish the Upper Hunter as a Positive Education Hub. A community in which to support, invest and research the implementation of positive education over a three-year period.
