Our school has a variety of wellbeing strategies in place to support the wellbeing of all students. These include our Year 6 buddy program. Our Year 6 students have a kindergarten buddy that they support all year with their transition to school, classroom and school activities. This provides great support for Kindergarten, while developing leadership skills in our Year 6 students.
Our Year 6 students also run peer support groups. The Peer Support leaders prepare specific lessons to build self confidence and communication and friendship skills and then deliver these to their group. The students learn amazing leadership and communication skills.
Our school also has weekly challenges based on our values Kind, Connect, Respect. These challenges are designed to encourage students to enact and encounter our values.
