Wellbeing in schools is for all students. A focus on wellbeing goes beyond just welfare needs of a few individual students and aims for all students to be healthy, happy, successful and productive individuals who are active and positive contributors to the school and society in which they live.
The Wellbeing Team at Chatswood High School is led by the three Head Teachers Wellbeing (one per stage) and includes:
- Deputy Principals
- School Counsellors
- Year Advisors
- Assistant Year Advisors
- Student Support Officer (Youth Outreach Worker)
- Careers Advisor
- Learning Support Staff
The Wellbeing Team follows the guidelines set by the Department of Education Wellbeing Framework that encourage schools to create learning environments that enable students to be healthy, happy, engaged and successful. At Chatswood High School this is achieved by personalised, small group and year group programs and initiatives focusing on cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
At Chatswood High School, the Wellbeing Team provides support for student wellbeing through a dynamic program of activities purposefully designed to strengthen student wellbeing and provide strong connections between students, parents and carers and the school community.
Each student has a Year Advisor and Assistant Year Advisor who provide support, building strong and open relationships. All students have access to counselling services, the Careers Advisor, Student Support Officer and Learning and Support teacher. This professional support is integral to our student wellbeing program
