Being Well is a program that supports the Department’s Great Place to Work initiative and is the place to come when you are reflecting on your own wellbeing, or supporting that of your colleagues or staff. It empowers you to take ownership but also show the role the department and your workplace can play in assisting you with being well. Being Well provides support to ensure you teach well, lead well, operate well and manage well by connecting you to services, programs and resources through one location.
Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:
school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
supporting individual students who need help with health issues
providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.
Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.
The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.
The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.
