The Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Program centres around a holistic approach to student wellbeing within an engaging and stimulating learning environment.
The objective of the Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Program is to create explicit links between student wellbeing and learning, fostering personal growth, connectedness and positive outcomes.
During fortnightly Pastoral Care and Wellbeing lessons, students work together with their peers and Mentor Leader, engaging in age appropriate activities aimed at developing coping skills and strategies to equip them for life at school and beyond.
Pastoral Care and Wellbeing lessons are specifically designed to foster self-belief, self-understanding and resilience. Pastoral Care and Wellbeing lessons engage students in the classroom and beyond to reflect upon, discuss and access support for their personal growth whilst building their individual self-belief and learning goals.
The Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Program imparts learning about personal wellbeing with respect to physical and mental health, risk-minimisation, informed decision-making and the building of healthy relationships with friends, peers and family.
