You Can Do It!

You Can Do It! Is a social emotional learning program. For over 20 years, Professor Michael Bernard and his colleagues have developed resources and training programs designed to strengthen the personal, social and performance capabilities of people of all ages.

You Can Do It! is recognised by Beyond Blue and teaches children resilience, confidence, persistence, organisation and how to get along. YCDI runs throughout the entire year with a new topic each week.

At Joey’s our Prep students participate in the Early Childhood Program Achieve. The preppies learn social emotional skills through their introduction to the five characters: Ricky Resilience, Connie Confidence, Pete Persistence, Oscar Organisation and Gabby Get Along.

The Year 1 to 6 students learn from the New Program Achieve curricula that contains lessons that teach attitudes, values/character strengths and social emotional skills for success, relationships and wellbeing.
