About the Program
The BCR program is designed to shape student character by creating a positive and empowering culture among students. Using the BCR Teaching Program provides you with the flexibility to effortlessly incorporate a selection of 48 character strengths or good habits into the daily lives of your students.
By helping students to understand, practise and use their character strengths, they will develop wellbeing, resilience and skills for academic and personal achievement, which are essential for promoting positive mental health, happiness, and social awareness.
The fundamental premise of character strengths within the BCR Program encourages students to discuss issues that matter to them and be listened to and respected by their peers.
By using the four core character strengths as pillars for personal and academic growth, the individual needs of students are met, as the program elicits important principles like leadership, cooperation and participation that is supported by teachers, school leaders and families.
Discussion and outcome-based activities are guided by learning objectives that allow students to demonstrate and record their progress throughout the year. By structuring the program this way, teachers are able to constantly reflect, and refine the delivery of the program, ensuring that all students benefit from each lesson.
This program can be used as a stand-alone program and/or supported by our StudyQuest or StudyTrek student diaries and teacher planners.
The BCR Program is designed to integrate into any school environment.
When using the BCR Program, we provide you with the necessary tools to tailor the program to your students:
