Our Vision

- That all of our staff and students will have the skills to monitor and enhance their own wellbeing, so that they may flourish and reach their full potential. Wellbeing is available to all.

- To have a concise framework that staff, students and the school community can relate to, and actively apply. (Wellbeing can be explicitly taught.)

- As a school community, value the long term importance of a healthy body and mind.

To involve parents and our community in this framework through homework discussions tasks and information sessions.
