The teaching of our Health curriculum at our school introduces and develops, the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will assist our students to flourish in a nurturing and supportive learning environment.

For children to flourish it includes:

  • Joyful living, nurturing love and a sense of trust
  • Awareness of and skills for connecting to others
  • Developing one’s capacities to the fullest and having the self-confidence to do certain things, become independent, and have the ability to act and think for yourself

We enable children to explore concepts related to their wellbeing, help our students get to know themselves and to better understand others and specifically to develop and practise skills which are relevant to their lives. The lessons also focus on the importance of showing respect and tolerance towards others and valuing diversity in our society.

Students are exposed to explicit skill building lessons in the Health room once a week and implicitly incorporated in their classrooms throughout all other subject areas in the curriculum. Examples of the tools explicitly taught are demonstrated below:


Our aim is to give students the tools, strategies and experiences to manage their emotions, help them solve their own problems and enable them to feel great about themselves. Confident and resilient children with a capacity for emotional intelligence perform better academically.  These skills can also contribute to their ability to create strong social bonds, supportive communities, maintain healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles. The program prepares children for the opportunities and challenges outside the classroom, assisting them to become responsible, caring members of society.
