Strengths Gym Teachers Manual

The Strengths Gym Teachers Manual is designed for use with the Year 7, Year 8, and Year 9 Strengths Gym course. It provides a menu format for each of the 24 sessions covered by the course, enabling teachers to chose activities they feel suit their individual class and ensure that they have a variety of activities over the weeks. Additional elements and resources are freely accessible through the Strengths Gym web page and can be used in conjunction with the provided material.

One of the key aims of Strengths Gym is for students to become more aware of strengths – in themselves, in other people, and in the world around them. This can lead to increased self-esteem, academic achievement, and ‘prosocial’ behaviour (e.g., better teamwork, improved social skills).
