Our Keynote presenter was Dr Denise Quinlan from the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience (NZIWR) who is the co-author with Dr Lucy Hone of the book The Educators’ Guide to Building Whole-school Wellbeing: A Practical Guide to Getting Started, Best-Practice Process and Effective Implementation.

Some history!


Our first on-line Wellbeing Workshop took place in May 2020 during the COVID-19 Lock-down. We spread it over two half-days of presentations and tips to assist schools with their wellbeing journey. 

Our Keynote speaker Dr Lucy Hone from the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience spoke about building resilience. RTLB Jan Whitham presented two sessions on Bounce Back: a resilience development programme developed by Drs Toni Noble and Helen McGrath. There were also sessions that showcased the work of Cluster 8 RTLBs and schools in this field.

Presentations notes, links and resources from these two workshops can be found on the Noticeboard.
