You Can Do It! Program

You Can Do It! Education forms the foundation of Durack’s Wellbeing Policy. It aims to identify the social and emotional capabilities that all young people need to reach their academic potential in school, to experience wellbeing and create positive relationships with others.

The 5 Keys of You Can Do It! Education

  1. Confidence (academic, social)
  2. Persistence
  3. Organisation
  4. Getting Along, and
  5. Resilience.

Central to the development of these 5 Key Foundations is instilling in young people 12 Habits of the Mind, including:

  • Accepting myself
  • Taking risks
  • Being independent
  • I can do it
  • Giving effort
  • Working tough
  • Setting goals
  • Planning my time
  • Being tolerant of others
  • Thinking first
  • Playing by the rules
  • Social responsibility

All classes have instruction in the program and it is the basis of class expectations and awards.
