Think Equal Australia Pilot Starting in May
Dear Friends and Supporters of Think Equal Australia,
We are thrilled to announce the Think Equal pilot will be commencing next month in Australia!
Having received approval from the Department of Education and Training of Victoria, the pilot will run at 50 schools (37 in Victoria and 13 in Queensland), with the Yale University Centre for Emotional Intelligence evaluating the programme throughout 2019.
Think Equal founder Leslee Udwin led initial workshops for teacher-trainers in February at Geelong Grammar School's Toorak Campus, and just after Easter, teachers from 76 classrooms will receive their training in the curriculum.
We could not have brought Think Equal to fruition in Australia without the support of our friends, and we sincerely thank each of you for championing the explicit teaching of equality to our children.
We look forward to sharing stories and examples from our Think Equal classrooms in our next update once the pilot is underway!
