Positive Education Launch

This year Dubai College, known for the strength of the students’ academic results, has set off in a unexpected direction by launching its own bespoke positive education programme. Based upon the work of Martin Seligman, the father of positive psychology, the school enlisted the help of Geelong Grammar School (GGS) in Victoria State, Australia to start them on their journey.

You are cordially invited to the launch of our Positive Education programme at 6pm on Monday 7th October, with refreshments in the auditorium foyer from 5.30pm.  We are delighted to be able to announce that Dr Abdulla Al Karam, Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Director General of the KHDA, will join us to launch our programme that evening.  Dr Abdulla is an active supporter of positive education and sits on the advisory board of IPEN, the International Positive Education Network.

Also joining us that evening will Dr Louise Lambert, Researcher and Editor of the Journal of Positive Psychology Middle East. Louise has been instrumental in devising our bespoke positive education programme, drawing on decades of longitudinal research to select those positive psychology interventions which have been shown to have a positive impact on student wellbeing as well as academic results.

The evening will be an interactive one so please bring an open mind and a warm smile. Louise will be running you through some of the interventions which your sons and daughters have been undertaking during their tutor times this term as well as the research which underpins their impact.

We very much look forward to you joining us that evening and we would encourage you to bring any interested friends and relatives.
