Following the success of 2017's Positive Education conference, we are delighted to announce that we will be returning for 2018. Once again hosted in Christchurch at Christ's College. Positive Education NZ 2018 will be on Friday 6 April & Saturday 7 April. Judging by the huge support from last year's event, we are confident that PENZ18 will be the largest gathering of all those interested in combining the science of well-being with best practice education.

6-7 April 2018
Positive Education New Zealand (PENZ) represents the entire education spectrum - primary, secondary and tertiary sectors. PENZ is already attracting the attention of our own academic and education experts - as well as world-class international authorities - on the application of well-being science in schools.. The conference will provide practical classroom resources and lesson plans. Presenters across all education sectors will share case studies and theoretical frameworks for organisational well-being, including tried and tested roadmaps guiding a school journey in Positive Education; from securing stakeholder buy-in, to getting started, conducting well-being audits and developing sustainable strategies.
Who should attend?

Educators, leaders and decision makers from the education sector (primary, secondary and tertiary) who have an interest in applying the theories and research emanating from Positive Psychology – evidence based wellbeing programmes. It is for those who wish to understand the benefits of Positive Education – for the individual, whole school and wider community.
