For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.

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.


The school capabilities framework drives our learning and supports our school vision. Students will be recognised for demonstrating the attributes of being kind, safe and doing their best with our new card system.

Students who demonstrate a strong commitment to a school capability will receive a reward card with the capability outlined on it. Students store their cards in their reward card holder in their classroom. Students collect their cards across their time in their stage (2 years) and work towards achieving their school values badge.  Kindergarten will only collect their cards over 1 year. 

Please see below pictures how many of each all students will need to collect.

Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Your Best

Student wellbeing

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.

The Resilience Project

What The Resilience Project delivers:

These statistics drive our commitment to teach positive strategies to help people build happiness and resilience. We are especially committed to delivering programs in early learning centres as well as primary and secondary schools – settings the recent Victorian Royal Commission and Productivity Commission revealed as having the biggest unmet need.

Our work in Education:

We are grateful and proud to have delivered wellbeing programs to over 1500 schools and early learning centres across Australia. Our schools program has been designed by teachers for teachers, and has been evaluated by the University of Melbourne.

Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Education Programs support mental health in the classroom, staffroom and family home.

The research is clear; the more positive emotion you experience, the more resilient you will be. For that reason we focus on three key pillars that have been proven to cultivate positive emotion; Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM), with Emotional Literacy being a foundational skill to practise these strategies.
