Rethinking Challenges:

Resilience is a conceptual process that moves us beyond coping. It’s a result of thinking optimistically, utilising strategies and viewing challenges as opportunity for growth.



Resilience can be achieve when we view challenges as opportunities, and are being open to new possibilities. Identifying strengths, achievements and support networks help protect students and assist them in developing a strong sense of self.

Rethinking Challenges has a strong focus on the influence our thoughts have on the way we view certain experiences.

Rethinking Challenges focuses on:

  • responding resiliently to challenges
  • acknowledging skills and achievements
  • identifying support people
  • reflecting on achievement, success and failure
  • supporting other in their transition to secondary school
  • taking responsibility for student wellbeing.

Please note:
Secondary schools looking to implement Peer Support Program Modules for the first time require:

  • current school membership
  • the Secondary Manual
  • a secondary Module
  • a school representative to be trained at an Implementation Workshop within the last five years.

If you are unsure if your school meets these requirements, please contact us on 1300 579 963.
