Berry Street Education Model


To support the continued focus in the area of Social Emotional learning at St Kevin’s, the school has adopted the Berry Street Education Model. The approach is through a trauma-informed positive education lens and follows a hierarchy of skills that children need to have in place to function effectively in society.

The Berry Street Education Model is designed to develop strong relationships, incorporate safe structures and enhance students’ understandings of what they can accomplish daily and in the future.
5 Domains are covered throughout the year. These are:

  • Body
  • Relationship
  • Stamina
  • Engagement
  • Character

While a whole school approach is adopted, individual student needs are always catered for.
