Wellbeing is fundamental to successful learning
Children and young people who are happy, confident and able to establish meaningful relationships are better placed to achieve positive learning outcomes. A culture of wellbeing in our college promotes:
• a positive sense of self in relationship with God and others
• a sense of optimism and confidence in one’s ability to influence the world for the common good
• structures, policies, procedures and initiatives, which are reflective of a school’s vision and mission and supported through effective leadership
• fostering of parent and community partnerships to maximise student outcomes
• empowerment of the school community to get the most out of student learning
• teaching and learning that provides rich and meaningful opportunities to enhance student engagement, connectedness and belonging
• the belief that wellbeing is integral rather than incidental to learning, and the development of social and emotional learning skills which enable students to flourish.
Our student wellbeing coordinator is a trained counsellor and provides valuable support one-on-one for our students. As well as offering a listening ear and helping students with any concerns that may arise, the student wellbeing coordinator supports the whole college community by connecting with parents and teachers and running programs that target the needs of the children including coping with grief and loss and developing social skills.
Tuning into Kids and Tuning into Teens are two popular “emotionally intelligent” parent programs that we run free for Trinity parents each year. Contact us for further information about the next program on offer.
