At the heart of our commitment to Wellbeing is ensuring, that every day, students feel a sense of life satisfaction, that is, they are Known, Valued and Cared For. We recognise that balancing day-to-day activities, a rigorous curriculum, and social life can be a challenge. That’s why we commit to working in ways that continue to raise awareness for healthy and diverse living and learning environments.

Emotional Regulation

We assist our students to develop the ability to exert control over their emotional state and respond to situations in a balanced yet flexible manner.

An emphasis Body Image and Sleep, in Mentor and class programs, supports and teaches Resilience in our students, helping them manage the inevitable setbacks we know they will experience in their lives, inside and outside school. Being aware of both positive and negative thoughts but choosing to focus on the good in any situation. A positive mindset leads to more positive outcomes and is known to be good for mental wellbeing.

Getting enough sleep is one of the most important things for student wellbeing. Children need 9-12 hours, teens 8-10 hours.
