St John the Baptist Catholic school believes that being pro-active about supporting, promoting and explicitly teaching mental health and well being strategies is vital in today’s world and into the future.
Students who are socially and emotionally competent are better able to navigate through the challenges of life’s ups and downs with a positive attitude and growth mindset.
Research shows that students who flourish in all aspects of their life experience positive emotions, feel engaged in what they are doing, develop and enjoy positive relationships and find deeper meaning in their lives and strive to achieve their personal best.
All members of the St John the Baptist staff work together along with the school counsellor and school chaplain to create a ‘Circle of Care’ to support wellbeing in our community. With a strong focus on a whole school Social Emotional Language and Positive Education our aim is to provide daily opportunities for our student to live each day to the fullest and to flourish.
