Differences in the resiliency profile of one hundred forty Grade 6 and 7 students classified as resilient students (RES) and students needing resiliency improvement (NRI) were compared. Purposive sampling method was used in choosing the respondents. Means, t-test and F-test were the statistical techniques used.
Results revealed significant differences in High Expectations, Caring and Support, Opportunities for Participation, and Clear and Consistent Boundaries. RES students’ strength lies in believing in themselves, capable of accomplishing tasks and responsibilities, forming harmonious relationships and deepening friendships, and being able to follow set rules. However, both groups feel the need to belong, to receive more care and support from significant adults, and to enhance their life skills.
