Wellbeing Programme

Our curriculum offers a skills-based wellbeing programme using most current resources, best practices and engaging activities to include a variety of student choices and learning styles.

We aim to create a relevant, collaborative and meaningful program which involves a variety of guest speakers and community partners to help bring life to a variety of health issues.

“Our goal is to prepare the students to understand themselves and others so they can access valid information, set goals, make informed choices, analyse influences and advocate for both themselves and others. “

Units & Activities

Our goal is to fully equip students with a range of strategies they can use both now and in the future to enhance their own personal wellbeing and the wellbeing of others. The curriculum focuses on units of inquiry connected to topics included in Physical, Emotional, Mental, Social, Financial and Sexual Health.
