Wellbeing at Discovery College is about equipping and enabling students to ‘flourish’ in all areas of their lives. Our approach involves a wide range of specific and planned for wellbeing practices and learning engagements.

These wellbeing practices and learning engagements are underpinned by the principles of Visible Wellbeing, and the SEARCH Framework: Strengths, Emotional Management, Attention & Awareness Relationships, Coping & Habits and Goals

And supported by:

  • An IB world school philosophy
  • Restorative Practices: Building Positive Relationships
  • PERMA (Martin Seligman, 2011): Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishment
  • CASEL: Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning Organisation

The development of student wellbeing is fostered across the College through a considered and aligned programme. All students from Year 1 to Year 13 are involved in a comprehensive wellbeing programme that addresses the emotional, social, mental, sense of meaning (connections to values and purpose) and physical health of an individual and group. Programmes are delivered by classroom teachers, Learning Advisors and outside providers.
