Student Wellbeing

Engadine High School

A Safe Environment

Our mission is to support a school wide strategy that enhances the wellbeing of young people to dream, believe and succeed. We build partnerships across the school community in a collaborative and nurturing environment to develop positivity and connectedness in a holistic manner. The Wellbeing team works collaboratively to acknowledge student strengths, developing a culture of resilient learners who thrive and succeed within the school.

Student wellbeing is fundamental to ensuring young people embrace learning, develop resilience, and become confident and informed citizens in our global community. The Wellbeing programs in our school enhance students’ self-efficacy, love of learning, and sense of belonging. This is why our students thrive in our educational environment and find success when they transition beyond our school.

EHS’s vision is to develop confident and creative individuals, with the personal resources for future success and wellbeing. Through a commitment to nurture, guide, inspire and challenge students we strive to create a safe learning environment. One area that continues to challenge students is the safe and respectful use of digital technologies. Social media has changed the way we think about using information, relating to each other and our ideas of community. Through wellbeing discussions at camps, year meetings, presentations by outside agencies and one-on-one conversations our Wellbeing Team help to build our students’ resilience and empower them to make positive choices. These valuable experiences assist our school community in working towards our students becoming responsible digital citizens. We teach them the tools to keep themselves safe online and to empower them to succeed and thrive in life within and beyond the school..

 

The Welfare Team

Engadine High School believes in supporting students to learn in a safe, nurturing environment so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes. This is a key target of the Wellbeing Team. The Wellbeing Team is a committed group who understand that each student brings a different set of experiences, knowledge and skills to school with them, and understanding these are essential to planning the learning needs of students and their wellbeing. They fully understand the interrelationship between school and home, and how they may impact on each other.

The team consists of the Head Teacher Wellbeing, Year Advisors, Assistant Year Advisors, School Counsellors, Careers Advisor, Learning Support staff and two Deputy Principals. The team works closely in partnership with staff, parents, caregivers and outside school services in order to foster student resilience. In daily interactions with students and through individual and whole-school programs, students are taught to be compassionate, self-aware, to be accountable for their choices, and to make sense of their world.

The school works in close association with outside agencies to provide additional support to meet student needs. Our primary concern is that all students’ needs are addressed and that school is a fun, happy and healthy environment for our entire student body where every child is known, valued and cared for.
