I found this presentation very informative and very useful in regards to developing student and staff morale, through their state of wellbeing. This is turn, would develop more positive attitudes and successes with student behaviour and their learning, in academics, social skills, interpersonal skills, etc., and I would recommend all interested and relevant staff to view this course. The wellbeing of all staff and students is important and relevant to how students behave and react to situations occurring in schools. If we are to develop positive learning environments that are truly supportive of student learning and social goals, then we need to have wellbeing initiatives in place for both staff and students. The aura or sensations of the positivity from the attitudes of staff affect how the students respond, and if we want the students to be successful in reaching their academic, social, interpersonal and other relevant life skills, especially those related to coping with and bouncing back up from poor mental health to higher, positive levels of mental fitness, we need to create that positive learning environment where it fosters and enhances all staff and students' wellbeing to see any improvements in both their behaviours and learning commitments. This course sets the foundations for these environments to occur, and with great leadership and consistency across all staff who are willing to put in 100% effort to achieve this, then the overall wellbeing and mental fitness of all involved should see a cumulative positive affect that can be contagious, in a pleasant manner, and spread throughout the community as well.
