At St Edmund’s College, our wellbeing focus is on primary prevention and intervention to reduce the incidence and effects of mental health problems in our students.
We aim to empower our students to enable a sense of connectedness, meaning, accomplishment and zest for life. We seek to help build confidence, self-esteem and resilience in order for our students to approach future life experiences, opportunities and challenges with self-assurance and energy. Our pastoral care program aims to buffer the effects of adverse life events by building protective factors within the individual, through the teaching of life skills. The pastoral care team is currently reviewing other areas that the principles of wellbeing can be taught to the students within the school environment.
