Our role as a Melbourne Catholic high school is to provide a well-rounded and supportive environment for students in Melbourne’s south-east. Our Wellbeing curriculum contributes to this mission and equips students with the knowledge and understanding they need to promote their own welfare and that of others.
Our Wellbeing curriculum is aligned to the Victorian Curriculum by teaching Personal and Social Capabilities and inspired by our Catholic identity. It is designed to teach students wellbeing skills as they relate to our Wellbeing For Learning Framework’s three key areas: Relationships, Relevance, and Resilience.
Relationship is our connection to the world and everything we encounter. We encourage students to learn self-development skills and how to engage in healthy relationships with others.
Relationship topics include: Self-Regulation; Connection and Belonging; Social-Emotional Intelligence; and Benefit Mindset.
Relevance is our sense of living a meaningful and purposeful life, and feeling good about what we are doing. Students are guided through ideas around accomplishment, meaning, purpose and engagement.
Relevance topics include: Flow; Personal Values; Goal Setting; and Intrinsic Motivation.
Resilience is our ability to work through all of life’s ups and downs with a sense of optimism and hope. Students are taught the power and utility in cultivating positive emotions, mindfulness and resilience.
Resilience topics include: Gratitude and Savouring; Positive Framing; Growth Mindset; and Grit.
