The article examines the implementation of positive psychology in education on the example of Geelong Grammar School (GGS) in Australia. The project deserves special attention as GGS is the first educational institutions in the world to integrate the key tenets of positive psychology into its curriculum. The school is using implicit and explicit teaching of positive psychology skills and principles across all year levels, that is from ELC to year 12, and across all aspects of school life: academic subjects, pastoral life, sport and the co-curriculum programme. The article consists of two parts. The first is a theoretical introduction to selected issues related to positive psychology and education, while the second part provides a case study of how this works in practice at GGS.
