Student Wellbeing

The wellbeing landscape of the Catholic school incorporates all aspects of school community life from students’ physical, intellectual, moral, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and development to the safe and supportive environment in which they learn.

The connection between the promotion of wellbeing and positive learning outcomes is clear. Research related to health and wellbeing shows that schools are important environments for the promotion of wellbeing in children and young people. Further, positive learning outcomes occur when delivered through a framework of social and emotional learning (SEL) approaches. Together they provide a sound basis for developing future healthy relationships and ultimately, achieving success in life.
