Student wellbeing is inextricably linked to engagement and achievement. Increasingly both internationally and here in Aotearoa New Zealand there is a focus on improving the wellbeing of our young people. If we agree that this is important, how might we nurture student wellbeing in our schools? This CORE Breakfast will offer three steps that we could take towards student wellbeing.

This CORE breakfast seminar will include:

  • define wellbeing in a schooling context
  • introduce two Aotearoa New Zealand models of wellbeing
  • suggest three ways in which student wellbeing might be nurtured in schools
  • link to a wealth of relevant and up-to-date resource materials.

Who will this session be of interest to?

This session will be of interest to primary and secondary teachers and leaders who wish to nurture and empower confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners. It will also be of interest to staff who are involved in promoting the health and wellbeing of their students and are curious to learn how they might amplify their endeavours.

About the workshop

During the workshop we will use a framework (adapted from Lifehack for an education context) to consider where we are at in terms of nurturing student wellbeing, and to identify and explore our possible next steps.

The workshop will:

  • introduce a framework for considering our current practices around student wellbeing
  • offer rich opportunities for discussion and reflection
  • support participants to identify and explore next steps for nurturing student wellbeing.
