Programs - Wellbeing
Wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. Our wellbeing programs extend to children, families and staff members. Our SWPBS program is a major wellbeing initiative; however, we also offer a range of other programs to support students and families
The RRRR program is explicitly timetabled, taught each week in the classroom, and reinforced through SWPBS by all staff.
The program supports schools and early childhood settings to promote and model respect, positive attitudes and behaviours. It teaches our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence. The program links many areas of the Victorian Curriculum.
We offer ‘Breakfast Club’ on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Staff and Parent Volunteers assist to prepare a healthy breakfast for all our students. During Breakfast Club, we sit together as a community and have a hearty breakfast between 8.30am and 8.55am. This program promotes healthy eating, responsibility and community. Volunteer’s families are welcome to attend, especially babies and toddlers who have plenty of space and toys to keep them amused!
Instead of having lunch orders, every Thursday our Parents and Friends Association prepares a healthy lunch for all students. The PFA works directly with our staff and students to utilise food grown in our school gardens to prepare lunch. During 2020, children will be more actively involved in planning, preparing and serving meals.
Twice per term, we invite all families for a special day to celebrate learning and enjoy a delicious lunch. We usually invite families to join us in learning activities between the hours of 10am and 2.30pm.
We offer a range of services to students through a referral process. If children are requiring extra educational, health, social or emotional support we can access a range of in school services to support your child.
We provide information to families who are looking for specific services to help them with their needs.
