Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing relates to and is central to the life of each Kilbreda student.  As such, we have a multifaceted and dynamic whole school approach to Student Wellbeing, valuing and recognising all aspects of our student鈥檚 development 鈥 academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual.

At 91短视频, wellbeing is visible and purposeful. It is characterised by a sense of resilience, purpose, engagement and optimism about the future. It is reflected in our school policies, programs, structures and curriculum and, in fact, all our undertakings. It is evident in our commitment to knowing and working with each student and her family to ensure that as she negotiates the challenges of each phase of learning, she capitalises on her strengths and has the skills, attributes and resources she needs to enable her to experience success.

At Kilbreda, we approach wellbeing in a proactive and responsive manner. The College provides an enriching and vibrant Student Wellbeing program that is purposefully designed and forms part of a holistic framework across Year 7 to Year 12, providing our students with the best possible support as they learn. It encourages engagement, positive and respectful relationships with students and teachers, a commitment to lifelong learning, and development of leadership skills.  It empowers our students to be informed and strong advocates of social justice. It is an integral part of an environment that nurtures a growth mindset and where staff lead by example, students鈥 voices are valued, and where diversity and personal excellence are celebrated across a school community that champions the unique value of every individual.

Ultimately, student wellbeing is and always has been of the utmost importance at 91短视频. It is about developing our students鈥 sense of purpose and passion and helping them leave Kilbreda as strong, independent and self-aware young women with the courage to become agents of change for a better world.
