Wellbeing

At Edenhope College we believe that all members of our school community are better prepared for learning and teaching when they are healthy, safe and happy.

Student wellbeing encompasses everything the school does to help students develop to their full potential. Some of the ways we do this include a focus on school wide positive behaviour support strategies for staff and students as well as a focus on programs that support respectful relationships, rights and resilience.

All staff are sensitive to the wellbeing needs of the students and appropriately refer students to specialist staff for assistance.

The College has a Leading Teacher responsible for Student Wellbeing and Engagement, a Wellbeing Team Leader, a Primary Welfare Officer, a Student Wellbeing Support Officer, a Chaplain and DET visiting support staff, with referrals and access provided to either face-to-face or tele-health counselling and other support services.
