Growing with Gratitude (GWG) is back in 2018 with a brand-new program, Positive Reflection! Help your students become positively engaged by coordinating the GWG Positive Reflection Program at your school. The Adelaide Football Club (AFC) in conjunction with the Department for Education, successfully launched and coordinated the Growing with Gratitude program throughout 2015, 2016 and 2017, visiting 391 South Australian Schools. The club is proud to announce that this partnership will continue in 2018 through the NEW GWG Program, Positive Reflection.

Positive Reflection has been developed using current research undertaken by Growing with Gratitude & the University of South Australia (Prof Debbie Price & Prof Deborah Green). The program is also connected with the Australian Curriculum (ACARA) & Department of Education's Wellbeing for Learning and Life framework for building resilience and wellbeing in children and young people. The Positive Reflection program is based on positive education and follows Dr. Martin Seligman’s ‘PERMA’ guidelines.


The program consists of an assembly style presentation conducted by the AFC Community Development staff for all students from Reception to Year 7. The presentation will focus on the Positive Reflection ‘5 Positive Places’ and will be accompanied by videos that feature Crows players. The presentation will also include Crows giveaways and a surprise visit from our club mascot Claude the Crow.

Following the presentation, Reception and Year 1 students will be invited to participate in a football based skills session. This key age group has been shown to benefit the most from the activities. A maximum of 2 sessions of 30 minutes duration (60 minutes in total) will be conducted and can cater for 3 classes at a time (6 classes in total).
