How to Thrive - Fundraiser

How to Thrive – Fundraiser ($25.00 pp)

Save the Date! Wednesday 9 November

Westgarth Theatre: 6.30-8.30pm

Good mental health is integral to the healthy development and wellbeing of every child and helps children’s ability to deal with challenges and adapt to change, so they can feel good about themselves, and enjoy life. In 2021, about 1 in 7 children and adolescents aged 4 to 17 experienced a mental health disorder in Australia – more needs to be done. 

At AGS, the mental wellbeing of our students, staff and broader school community is of critical importance, as we continually to learn more about the tools and support necessary to ensure we can all thrive.

To start this conversation, we are proud to be able to schedule an exclusive fundraiser film screening for the AGS community of a social documentary: ‘How To Thrive‘.

How to Thrive is a very powerful documentary film about the lives of 7 people making incredible journeys during times of personal emotional struggles. The people are so relatable to each of us no matter where we are in our life journey what our relationship status is or family life. Having seen the film before its public release it is a raw, intimate, heartfelt and a hopeful film that explores the transformative journey to learn “How to Thrive:” Can the science of happiness be taught?

We have 100 seats available at the Westgarth Theatre for our exclusive use.

At the conclusion of ‘How To Thrive’, there will be a Q&A Panel Discussion with the film’s Director, Duy Huynh, and Positive psycho-therapist Marie McLeod (who’s featured in the film).
