Wellbeing– One Term
of the Year 7 Wellbeing program is to ensure the Child Protection Curriculum is
explicitly taught with the key focus areas being: The right to be safe;
Relationships; Recognising and reporting abuse; Protective strategies. The
second component of the program is based on the lesson materials that teach and
reinforce brain development, resilience, gratitude, mindfulness and emotional
literacy. Lesson materials have been crafted to ensure students engage in order
to learn critical skills and knowledge concerning contemporary issues impacting
young people. The program is designed to be informative providing students with
opportunities to discuss and research social and emotional issues with the view
to also providing opportunities to practise techniques to improve the quality
of their own lives. This program aligns with the Child Protection Curriculum.
It also aligns with the Personal, Social and Community Health content from the
Heath and Physical Education Australian Curriculum.
