‘Friendology’ is a part of our school-wide URSTRONG implementation at Dunsborough Primary School that facilitates our children in developing a number of life skills, that also promote and support the development and management of healthy peer relationships. Its emphasis is on enhancing the social-emotional wellbeing of children through learning and owning friendship skills.
URSTRONG is an internationally recognised friendship program that empowers children with the skills, language, and self-confidence to be better friends and develop healthier relationships. It supports research that shows children with healthy friendships perform better academically, have higher self-esteem, a more positive body image, get involved in more leadership roles, and make smarter decisions in future relationships.
