Introduction to the Weaving Well-Being Programme

Weaving Well-Being is the first Irish-designed positive mental health programme of its kind which aims to enhance well-being in children aged from 7.5 to -12.5 years within the framework of the SPHE curriculum.

This affordable Positive Education programme consists of 10 lessons for each class level and is grounded in evidence-based interventions from the rapidly expanding field of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is the science of well-being.

It is underpinned by the concept that a state of well-being is not simply the absence of the negative, but the presence of the positive.  The Weaving Well-Being programme gives children the opportunity to weave positivity into their daily lives through a range of activities in a variety of areas resilience skills (including mindfulness) and developing self-efficacy through empowering beliefs. The lessons are designed to be implemented within the framework of the SPHE curriculum.

Each of the five levels of Weaving Well-being comes with a Teacher Resource Book (with a comprehensive online Digital Companion Page – DCP) and a Pupil Book (Reflective Journal). The DCP contains PowerPoint presentations for each lesson, supplementary worksheets, classroom posters and much more. The pupil book has two activities per lesson as well as an activity for home. A pull-out Parent Information Guide is included in each student’s Pupil Book to support parental involvement.

Within the teacher resources books, teachers are also provided with the opportunity to enhance their own well-being through various interventions and activities.

The Pupil Book for each level builds into a highly individual and personal resource for the child’s future use. The programme is child-centred, practical and is designed to be easy to deliver in any classroom setting.

The Weaving Wellbeing series has been redesigned to ensure that it meets the highest accessibility standards for printed materials. The series meets the strict WCAG AAA accessibility standard and guidelines of the NCBI in Ireland and the RNIB in England.

The programme was written by Fiona Forman & Mick Rock.
