Well-being in the schoolyard

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:34 pm on 13 February 2019

How much does a child's well-being impact the way they can learn? And how do we go about defining well-being for children? Lea Waters is a psychologist and researcher who specialises in the relationship between children's emotional state and their ability to learn.

Lea has just been in New Zealand speaking at Marsden College about how a "visible well-being" approach can be woven into into a daily curriculum.
