Willowmavin Primary School’s wellbeing program supports all our academic programs and is critical in helping to shape well-rounded, self-assured individuals.
The School’s chaplaincy and wellbeing program aims to assist students requiring support for personal, social or academic reasons in a confidential and safe environment.
Through these services we work in partnership with families, teachers, peers and other professionals to provide with the skills and support for them to make informed and responsible decisions about their own wellbeing. The pro-active promotion of responsibility for personal health and wellbeing is the most effective and recourse efficient way to assist young people to make healthy choices and develop healthy lives.
Spreading Kindness at Willowmavin PS
This week, kindness stones were hidden in the gardens and play areas of Willowmavin Primary School. Students and staff have been encouraged to find, read and think about the messages on these stones, before gently hiding in a different place for someone else to find. This activity is designed to develop connections within our community, sharing kindness and sparking joy in the children and staff of Willowmavin one stone at a time. It has been great to see and hear the excitement of students when they find a stone, with some students creating their own kindness stones, writing their own messages of kindness and hiding around the school.
I encourage you to speak with your child(ren) about the rocks they have found, together developing an understanding of what each message means to them.
Sometimes, all it takes is one simple message to brighten someone’s day!
Club Willow gives students an opportunity to develop social relationships in a supported environment. The program will run every Monday and Wednesday during lunch, and Tuesday during recess and lunch with all students invited to attend.
Activities include mindfulness colouring, relaxation music, social board games, a sensory table with play dough and kinetic sand and a reading corner with couches and cushions.
Overt the past term, students have enjoyed the consistent activities and building relationships in a fun and engaging environment.
