Student Wellbeing

The Student Wellbeing Team at Warringa Park School are dedicated to creating a positive and engaging school environment that promotes the health, wellbeing and learning of all students. Our team assist and empower students to achieve their full potential through the provision of personal development opportunities and support services including:

These school services can help students learn the competencies and skills they need to build resilience and effectively manage their emotions, behaviour and relationships with others. In turn, these support opportunities and programs optimise the wellbeing of students through all stages of their development so they can be healthy, happy, engaged and successful.

We know that there are strong links between wellbeing and school excellence. Not only can the provision of support services increase student mental health and wellbeing, but the impact can also be correlated to positive learning engagement, outcomes and future success. When a student is supported in their development they can connect, thrive and succeed in their learning to achieve their goals and prepare for future.
