Eastland have partnered with URSTRONG to provide crucial resources to local Primary Schools in Maroondah for the benefit of the teachers, students and families.
Published 20 January

URSTRONG and Eastland share a strong, mutual interest in empowering youth and school communities while positively influencing all aspects of their lives via the development of healthy friendships.

URSTRONG empowers kids with friendship skills while providing parents and teachers with a common language to support them. Youth gain the tools they need to foster friendships that are transparent, supportive, and rooted in integrity. 

A whole-community strategy, URSTRONG utilises the Friendology 101 curriculum, the Educator and Parent Resource Centres, and a variety of workshops and teacher training sessions. Using practical, step-by-step instruction, students learn how to differentiate and manage conflict (Friendship Fires™ vs Mean-on-Purpose) with kindness and respect.

The Friendship Journal has been partially subsidised by Eastland as a commitment to supporting the youth of Maroondah and leadership in creating a healthy and connected community. The Friendship Journal is a daily planner that is being adopted by URSTRONG Schools to ensure that students have an additional tool to build and reflect upon their growing friendship skills.
