game of life FOR SCHOOLS
The world’s best and most affordable school well-being programs for boys aged 7-16. No matter your post code in Australia
Welcome to Game Of Life Schools
Game Of Life is a partnership between Beautiful Minds and cricket star Marnus Labuschagne.
Beautiful Minds was founded in 2023, and we serve over 983 schools each year.
Our Game Of Life school programs have been designed specifically for boys in Years 5-11 to give them the tools and skills to take care of their health and well-being and navigate the tricky obstacles of growing up.
Our programs have been designed by world-leading well-being experts, backed by over 30 years of research.
We take a percentage from each school booking and invest it in charitable efforts – focus on programs that support children, education, and health and human services in communities around the world.
Current projects include:
Food security, care for new mums, vocational training, computer access and clean water for kids in Africa.

In this powerful and interactive session, we teach kids how to deal with anxiety and nerves in real-time situations.
Marnus through highly engaging videos will discuss how he deals with the anxiety, nerves and fear at the crease in big match situations in Test Matches. And how he creates healthy habits and a system to manage his anxiety.
These videos will be supported by a presenter demonstrating practical tools for dealing with anxiety, nerves and stress. These tools were created by The Huberman Lab for Neuroscience at Stanford University for the US Military and US Navy Seals.
Our take-home material includes an Anxiety Management Workbook, with practical applications for school situations and home life.
$10-20 / per student (excl. GST )
In response to growing concerns about young people’s behaviour, we set out to create an aspirational focused on values, good behaviour, role models, and creating a vision for your life.
When Marnus Labuschagne was a kid, with the help of a mentor he created a “Life Map”—a vision of his future goals and the values he aspired to embody. This powerful and interactive session focuses on teaching students how to craft their own Life Map, an inspiring blueprint for long-term growth and success.
Students will end the session by signing a ‘contract’. Keeping them accountable to their Life Map.
This sessions is built on Marnus’s own framework and 30 years of Multiple Intelligence work from Harvard University.
This session is more than just fluff and self-discovery.
It’s a comprehensive guide to students becoming the best version of themselves.
This session includes:
- Highly engaging videos from Marnus
- A guided workshop with a Beautiful Minds Certified Coach.
- A take-home family playbook
- Access to our private online well-being platform – Community+
$10-20 / per student (excl. GST )
In a world where young people often struggle with behavior, their friendship circles, and finding positive role models, the importance of authentic friendships and people who keep you accountability cannot be overstated.
We’ve designed this dynamic session on Marnus’s own story and relationship with his best friend James Bazley – a Queensland Bulls and Adelaide Strikers star.
Both men using each other for support and an accountability buddy drive each other to professional success.
Children will learn with an in-house presenter:
- How to navigate their own friendship circles
- How to exit a toxic circle
- How to identify ideal friends and role models
- What makes a great accountability buddy
- High-quality videos from Marnus on Friendships
- Presenter to demonstrate practical tools and strategies
