Abstract: 
Resilience is a universal capacity which a person uses to minimize or overcome
damaging effects of adversity (Rutter, 1993). Schools play a role in the development of
resilience by identifying early vulnerabilities and creating learning environments to teach
students to meet challenges and overcome anxieties. This paper discusses how friends and
personal attitude in school are related to resilience. It is based on a Singapore analysis and
includes implications for further study.
