Allow students to meet support staff such as guidance officers, health nurse, support teachers, visiting psychologists and school chaplains.
Support our community to connect with our school as we offer wellbeing programs for students and families. We run parenting programs and courses from our SWeLL space.
Provide a range of programs to address issues such as bullying and cyber safety as we continue to directly teach and promote our values of respect, responsibility and resilience.
‘One student’ is about acknowledging that we see student wellbeing as fundamentally important and a prerequisite for learning and ongoing engagement within our school. The SWeLL space is our hub of student and community wellbeing support at Helensvale SHS.
