This applied case study centers on two aspects of Peterson’s research as introduced into a large K-12 school in Australia: (i) creating enabling institutions and (ii) applications of character strengths. The paper describes ﬁve character strengths initiatives. Four of the strengths initiatives have been integrated into existing school experiences such as English curriculum, school sport, student leadership, and counseling. The ﬁfth initiative involved a brand new program which introduced a Positive Education Curriculum for yearsK-10. We describe these ﬁve initiatives and then explain how students at the school may experience these in a more holistic and integrated way. We hope that this article will act as a ﬁtting tribute to the legacy of Christopher Peterson.
