Practicing health and well-being experiences throughout the school day, gives educators the opportunity to check in with their students. Regular daily practice can also encourage students to self-reflect and provide them with the skills to communicate their mental, emotional, and intellectual state. Together, this provides opportunities for schools to become aware of any problems, and better support their student’s health, well-being and time in school.
By implementing and assessing your classroom, you will inadvertently be equipping your students with the tools they need to navigate complexities in the classroom with resilience and joy.
What is well-being?Well-being is a combination of a person's physical, mental, emotional and social health factors. Wellbeing is linked to happiness and life satisfaction. It can be described as how you feel about yourself and your life.
How can my school support children's mental health?Schools can prioritise mental health by implementing programs and practises which encourage and empowers each child to take ownership of their mental, emotional, and intellectual well-being through a series of practises that will eventually become subconscious habitual practise over time.
