Achieving, Believing and Caring presents a new challenge to schools: to redefine 'success' to include students' physical, emotional, and social development and well-being. It argues that learning does not start and stop at the school gate, and that effective schools must offer students meaningful learning that challenges their thinking while connecting them with reality.

Based on a deep belief in the potential of every child, this book encourages every educator to help students make better choices. It shows how to guide students away from destructive behaviour towards the more positive actions that will help them achieve successful lives, not just in school, but in the world beyond.

Achieving, Believing and Caring offers the "ABCs" of school partnerships that lead not just to more successful student learning, but stronger families and healthier communities. Compelling examples of schools, programs and teachers that make a difference in the lives of children complete this book.
