Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development, and are optimized by safe, supportive and respectful learning environments. Schools share this responsibility with the whole community.
Not only do 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 and supportive communities, and to maintain healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles.
At Bayview Secondary College we understand that the best learning happens when students are resilient, happy and confident. For maximum striving, thriving and flourishing wellbeing, our students are taught positive ways of thinking about themselves and their learning, so that they can act in ways that will make them more successful. A growth mindset is an important disposition for any learner and our student well-being program assists students to develop this as they move from year 7 to 12.
Through our student well-being program we focus on the development of strong well being through 6 key focus areas: Strengths and Emotions, Skills and Achievements, Relationships and Optimism, Positive Engagement, Meaning and Purpose, Exercise and Health.
