It has been a particular emphasis of Swan Christian College to work diligently to provide a safe and nurturing community that encourages students to respect themselves and others. Below we have put together a list of resources relating to student wellbeing that might be of help to students, parents and staff.
Living Well Program
Swan Christian College's wellbeing program Living Well encourages mindfulness, exercise, and other stress-busting strategies, while also providing additional mental health resources and information for parents to access as they help their children through the rapidly changing social fabric and the stresses of teenage years.
From 2020 onwards, the Living Well program will deliver strategies and a better understanding of our changing world to our students and will actively focus on preparing our students for life beyond school.
Workshops for students and parents with quality specialist facilitators will be made available and our College and camp programs will include opportunities to develop resilience, confidence and life skills.
In 2020, this program will target Middle and Senior School, focusing on the teenage years and students getting ready to leave school.
