Open Morning

Please join us on Saturday 31 August 2019 from 10 am to 12 noon for our school Open Morning.

Lance Holt School leads the way in Positive Education, building a school culture with strong social and emotional learning programs and practice. Lance Holt School has a long-standing history of partnering with parents and the wider community to deliver an educational approach that supports the whole child, focuses on wellbeing and nurtures a love of learning.

Positive Education fosters traditional academic skills and supports happiness and wellbeing. Positive Education could also be thought of as a ‘wellbeing curriculum’ that can explicitly teach skills to students to build positive emotions and use their character strengths. Research has shown that high levels of student wellbeing lead to better academic performance.
