Student Wellbeing is of key importance at Randwick Public School, with several programs in place to support students’ social and emotional learning.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning- a whole shool approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students. More information on our school-wide values and expectations can be found at Student welfare.
Grow Your Mind
A curriculum-aligned, wellbeing program is based on four key pillars of research – positive psychology, public health, social and emotional learning + neuroscience. The program provides a common language extending beyond wellbeing, builds confidence and supports academic learning..
In Term 2, all students participate in the Peer Support program. This program provides students with values-based education through participation in small-group activities facilitated by Year 6 leaders. Each Peer Support group is made up of 10-12 students of all ages, helping to build student friendship networks across the school and providing an opportunity for student leadership. The focus of Peer Support varies from year to year, with students benefiting from learning about resilience, honesty and making friends.
To promote safe and responsible use of technology, all K-6 students participate in Digital Citizenship education throughout the year. These lessons see students take on real challenges and digital dilemmas, giving them the skills needed to success as digital learners and citizens. Learning in digital citizenship includes lessons in privacy and security, relationships and communication, and information literacy.
