The You Can Do It! Education Program (YCDI!) for children is a whole school approach to social and emotional learning. It was developed in Australia at the University of Melbourne by psychologist Professor Michael Bernard. It has been used extensively in the US, the UK and across Australia. The program teaches students a number of different skills that they need to know in order to be happy and successful in school and experience positive relationships.
At Sherwood State School, the Five Keys to Success (Confidence, Persistence, Organisation, Getting Along and Resilience) are explicitly taught in each classroom. The YCDI! programme teaches positive attitudes, social-emotional skills, character strengths and values based on the science of wellbeing and achievement.
