Melba College SWAT Project


Tara, Jess, Aira and Karina identified that stress was one of the biggest issues facing young people in year 10 at their school. As they had previously been part of workshops around stress that the students really engaged with, they wanted to give their peers an opportunity to learn some different ways of coping with stress that they would be able to try out in their lives. They organised to have external facilitators to come in and run a yoga session and a mindfulness session for all their year 10 students. The feedback from the students who participated in this workshops was really positive.

Demonstrated character strengths:
