Scotch College Adelaide is an independent, co-educational day and
boarding school offering an outstanding education from
Early Learning to Year 12
Scotch is committed to Positive Education and applying the principles of positive psychology in all areas of the organization. We are committed to ensuring that all staff and the broader Scotch community also have access to information about positive psychology and its impact on the culture of the school.
A growing body of research supports our belief that we can and must teach skills and provide opportunities that increase positive emotion, engagement, positive relationships, meaning in life and accomplishment. Dr Martin Seligman’s model is called PERMA.

(A) AccomplishmentIn adopting PERMA we:
Providing opportunities for our students to experience positive emotions such as inspiration, pleasure and peace is important to their wellbeing. So too is a sense of engagement. Students can experience a deep sense of engagement when working on projects that genuinely interest and challenge them, participating in sports and learning new skills. Feeling connected in some way to a cause bigger than oneself and having a sense of purpose is also integral to student wellbeing. So, volunteer work and performing acts of kindness are part of the broad school experience. Finally, accomplishing things in life can contribute to a sense of fulfilment. Scotch values this and encourages its students to achieve in a range of areas and to strive to reach their personal best.
