Student Wellbeing Program
The Student Wellbeing Program is delivered as a two year structure that actively engages students practically and theoretically in social, emotional and personal development. Students will learn through activities such as team building exercises, in class activities, guest speakers and whole school events. The program will focus on the overall health and wellbeing of the individual student and strengthen the relationships between students and staff.
The framework for this program is based on Positive Psychology research and the Ways to Wellbeing (Give, Take Notice, Keep Active, Keep Learning and Connect). The program will also incorporate the principle of ‘Giving’, recognising that those who feel a sense of purpose have a higher state of life pleasure. The program will link to relevant charity organisations and foster a culture of giving within the college community. The program contributes to the overall mental and emotional wellbeing of the students at the college.
The Student Wellbeing Program will help develop students into young adults that can positively contribute to the school community and to society after they have completed their education. The student groups will have high expectations and promote student responsibility through goal setting and lifelong learning. The student group program would support strong teacher-student relationships and would nurture the development of a range of students. The collegiality of staff at the college will be promoted through the SG buddy program and the encouragement of effective communication regarding individual student’s academic progress and emotional wellbeing.
Students will undertake units on:
- Mental Health & Sexual Health
- Wellbeing, Self-Awareness & Positive Relationships
- Party Safe & Personal Safety
- Healthy Lifestyles and Giving
