Kinross Wolaroi School

Student Wellbeing

We believe that student wellbeing is the single most important facet of Kinross Wolaroi Preparatory School.

Children who are happy at school, who feel safe, secure and have friends, will learn and feel good about themselves. To enable this to occur we incorporate programs and strategies focussed on student wellbeing into our school routines.

Class teachers are the primary carers in the Preparatory School. Most matters of student care and welfare are dealt with through the class teacher.

As part of our PDHPE Key Learning Area, a significant amount of time is spent on forming and developing relationships, building resilience and learning strategies to cope with bullying.

A Peer Support Program also occurs each year with a variety of themes. The program connects students and class teachers within the House system across all year groups of the School. It promotes and fosters leadership, friendship and school spirit.

Another program is the Buddy System between our Year 6 students and Kindergarten. This is an outstanding way of making the transition smooth and friendly for our younger students.

Also part of the wellbeing program is our spiritual component. Children attend Religious Education classes and Chapel where explanations of the Bible and of how our lives are guided by Christian values.

The House system, interaction between classes, and a school where students feel safe and secure all enable the above programs to successfully contribute to the wellbeing of the students in our care.
