Positive Education at Mullum Primary School brings together the science of positive psychology and best practice teaching and learning to support students, staff, parents and the community to flourish.
Mullum Primary School has partnered with Maroondah City Council to implement Positive Education to positively impact the wellbeing of young people across Maroondah. We have a focus on teaching specific skills that strengthen relationships, which build positive emotions, enhance resilience and promote mindfulness, all contributing to valuable life long skills.
At Mullum Primary we further develop our awareness of the Indigenous community by including in our curriculum Kooramook groups. Kooramook when translated to English means Possum Cloak Dreaming. Possum Skin Cloaks were considered an important trade item in pre-European times as they kept people warm and safe. At Mullum we value the important contribution that the Indigenous peoples had with the land.
