Mr GA Mallen
A must read for teachers who truly care about their students wellbeing!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 May 2015
As a teacher involved in developing the wellbeing of secondary school students this book is a great read. It clearly demonstrates the importance of delivering an education system that is not just about exam results and one that truly offers the life skills students require to navigate their way through life. A fantastic read and an important step forward for education!

A great story of educational leadership and whole school change. Geelong Grammar's story is informative and it is a wonderful case study/experience that provide educational leaders a road map to creating great schools for our children. Schools that will empower more students to thrive and flourish in an increasingly rapidly changing world. Well Done!
