St Teresa's School
Embracing wellness at St Teresa's School goes beyond mere individual actions; it's about fostering a culture that prioritises both physical and mental health, guiding our students not just to survive, but to thrive.
Enhancing well-being in a school environment is not achieved through isolated interventions; rather, it demands the establishment of a pervasive well-being culture across the entire school community. The commitment of our entire staff, both teaching and non-teaching, is pivotal to this approach. St Teresa's School's Wellness program is rooted in a holistic and preventative philosophy.
Valuing well-being is at the core of St Teresa's School's ethos. We believe that schools play a pivotal role in supporting students to make healthy lifestyle choices and comprehend the impact of these choices on their overall health.
Adolescence, being a critical period, shapes attitudes toward long-term well-being and lifestyle choices. The social and emotional skills acquired in the classroom, as well as workshops and guest speakers, help build resilience, establishing patterns for managing physical and mental health throughout life.
St Teresa's School actively engages parents in this journey, hosting talks by professionals throughout the year. We extend this to parents from neighbouring schools, forming a supportive network.
Wellness, in essence, is an ongoing process of awareness and choices leading to optimal holistic health. It surpasses mere happiness or good health, necessitating active involvement from schools, students, and parents alike. Together, we can shape an environment where well-being is not just a goal but an integral part of our collective journey.
