Mary Williams – Guidance Officer, Tamborine Mountain State School
Tamborine Mountain State School has been using the Emotional Intelligence Programs from Swinburne University for four years. The programs are extremely well structured and sequentially teach the critical skills of emotional recognition and expression, understanding the emotions of others, emotional reasoning and emotional management and control. We have noticed our students are transferring the skills they have learned in their lessons into everyday life and are using more self-regulation strategies to calm down and solve their problems.
Our school feels extremely privileged to have a partnership with Swinburne University. The supporting staff from the University are responsive to feedback about the program and excited to hear the stories of our school’s progress using their programs. 10 out of 10 for the programs and 10 out of 10 for the positive impact it has with our students.
