Wellbeing Curriculum

St Peter’s offers students, staff, parents and support personnel with opportunities to engage with and be part of wellbeing events, learnings, and culture. In this regard, St Peter’s is at the forefront of wellbeing achievement-based solutions for academic performance.

At St Peter’s we have a Wellbeing culture, where we aim to feel good and function well and wellbeing is simply a way of being. Through our Wellbeing Curriculum, our community acquires tools and skills for their kete. These tools and skills allow us to thrive, help us grow and develop resilience. We also acknowledge that there are times when wellbeing can be compromised, and these tools help us at times when we may be feeling unbalanced or face challenging situations.

Our Wellbeing Curriculum is strengths based, drawing from best practice which is evidenced based and is bespoke to our community. 

Each student at St Peter’s is in a learning group, which is gender and year group specific. Year 7 & 8 students are with their home room teacher and the Year 9 – 13 students have a learning group coach who travels with them from Year 9 - 13. In Learning Groups, we have a “taught Wellbeing Curriculum”, which is content specific to the needs of students. The content aims to grow each student’s capacity and allows them a space to thrive. Examples of the content topics include emotional intelligence, growth mindset, resilience, coaching, belonging, functioning well, positive psychology, managing self, empathy and more.

Through faculties and entrenched in our community, we have the “caught wellbeing curriculum” which allows us to focus on school wide wellbeing. Teachers focus on strengths in class and each faculty has key themes to develop in their learning areas. For example, perseverance in maths, social intelligence in social studies, gratitude in languages. Teachers walk the talk with wellbeing and role model our themes through their interactions and every day conversations with one another, students, staff and community.

We have community presentations, information through our in-touch newsletter, facebook, online wellbeing platform SchoolTV, all which educate parents and caregivers about wellbeing themes and pertinent topics. Our co-curricular coaches, itinerant teachers, and boarding staff ensure students apply tools in a practical way, for example growth mindset, box breathing, above the line thinking. coaching conversations. These all help support students to excel in a space to learn and within a high performing environment.

Our wellbeing curriculum enables a strong culture and St Peter’s creates a space to flourish for every student, staff and parent.
