Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing provides and enhances:

 

  • Positive self regard
  • Respect for others
  • Positive relationships
  • Responsible behaviours
  • Personal resilience

 

Wellbeing is integral to learning excellence and ultimately, to overall health and life success.  As a dynamic and caring community, Mary Immaculate Primary School has a duty of care to promote student wellbeing, safety and positive relationships so that our students can flourish and reach their full potential.  Our programs, policies and initiatives aim to promote wellbeing in all areas of our students lives:  the social world of friendships and relationships; the digital world, where students navigate the challenges of new and emerging technologies; and the wider world, where students need skills to make safe choices on a range of issues.  Our students therefore feel valued and respected, and safe and supported.  We actively cultivate positive Student Wellbeing through building a support network based on trust between all members of the school community.  Our students achieve shared success to strengthen a sense of belonging and they also share responsibilities in the classroom and across the school. Our students have opportunities to develop their leadership skills, with our senior students all holding authentic leadership positions.  We have a dedicated Student Wellbeing Leader who works closely with staff, parents and students to coordinate the wellbeing programs at our school.
