Positive Pieces Education is proud to be part of an international network of Second Step publishers. Finland is one of those countries where Second Step has been taught in schools for 11 years. Our esteemed colleague, Arja, an educational psychologist, responsible for bringing Second Step to Finnish schools has sent a video message to us in Australia to show her support for Australian Schools using Second Step and we couldn't wait to share it with you!
In her video message, Arja shares the positive outcomes she has witnessed since implementing Second Step in Finland. She hopes for the same great results for Australian schools using the program.
As you may well know, Finland is renowned for its highly successful and lauded education system. So much so, that the former Director General of Finland’s Ministry of Education, Pasi Sahlberg will be the keynote speaker at the upcoming Positive Schools Conference series being held in Australian capital cities this May and June. Positive Pieces Education will attending the conferences in the Eastern States so make sure you drop by to say hi, have a chat and pick up the latest information on Second Step. We look forward to seeing you there!
If you are unable to make it to one of the conferences, we also have two upcoming workshops that we are holding in Melbourne (29th May) and Sydney (19th June) where Founder of Positive Pieces Education, Jenny will take a deep dive into the research behind the Second StepProgram and Social Emotional Learning. This one day workshop is perfect as a starting point for any schools interested in implementing Second Step or for schools who have the program and are wanting that little bit extra or a refresher. Both workshops are fast approaching so be sure to get your registrations in asap.
We hope you enjoyed the video message from Finland to you.
