Founded during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Happy Schools has created a blended curriculum to foster the Whole Child and provide our students with the interpersonal, intellectual, and intrapersonal skills required to thrive in our changing world.
Our Purpose, Our Why:
To create a world where humans can show up wholeheartedly and thrive with a smile.
To provide students, parents, and teachers with accessible tools to navigate the 21st century.
We envision a world where people can recognise the unique contribution they have to add and use those talents to add value and better our world.

Hi there! My name is Lauren. I have passion for education, psychology and technology. I'm a qualified foundation phase teacher, with my honours in education (specialising in psychology) and by the end of 2021, I will have my masters in education (specialising in educational technology). Iâ€™m also in the process of writing and illustrating my first children's picture book as well as working on research building on automated tools to assist teachers in improving learnersâ€™ reading abilities. I am always keen to chat to anyone who is interested in improving the ways we educate our learners!

To create a world where humans can show up whole-heartly and thrive with a smile.
To provide students, parents, and teachers with accessible tools to navigate their inner-world (Emotions, self-regulation, self-management, responsible decision making) and the world around them (Social-awareness, relationship skills). We do this using dynamic workshops, creative curriculum, professional development training, stories, and an unquenchable thirst to find new ways to innovate education.
We envision a world where people are able to recognise the unique contribution they have to add, to use those talents to add value and gain economically and have the tools to deal with the ups and downs of thriving in our world.
Be the role-model / teacher you wish you had. Treat everyone as if they are doing the BEST they can with the tools they have. Learn something new every day. Time is variable, learning is fixed â€“ we are not about output for the sake of output, we believe in building systems which help us succeed.
