Happiness at school

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Judith Steigmuller

We all want our children to be happy and we send our children to school hoping that they will have an emotionally enriching and balanced day. Educators and researchers alike are now realising that connecting wellbeing to learning is an important influencer on a child’s development. Now science is backing up that intuition. This module looks at what happiness is, the characteristics of happy people, and where ‘happiness’ sits in the brain. It engages children to look at their own happiness levels and how to enhance them for a more fulfilling life.

We will explore

  • Happiness and the brain connection
  • Looking at happiness ‘skills’
  • Examining what makes individuals happy
  • How to enhance happiness levels
  • Why happiness is good for your health


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Reflection of thoughts worksheet
  • Teacher assessment
  • Skills to be happy animation

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
